I am primarily interested in fiction. My novel, set in World War II, is about a German girl and an American soldier. I'm looking for feedback on my work as I proceed through another round of editing and rewriting. I was actively involved with writers' groups and workshops in Cleveland, OH, where we submitted chapters of our work on a regular basis and received feedback from the group after they had read our submissions.
My main interests are in technique (character and plot development) and motivation.
Yes. My plan is to find a group where I can submit my work once a month, or every other month, and receive feedback.
While I have completed a manuscript (friends have told me that's an accomplishment), I realize that the project still needs work. I have gone through one round of submisions to agents (two years ago). My goal is to submit my manuscript to agents in the next year and sell the novel.
