Pensacola Weekly Writing and Critique Group

Looking to get some fresh eyes and detailed feedback on your work? A critique group can help you to:

  • Gain new perspective on your work from members of various backgrounds.
  • Learn to talk about your writing and yourself in front of others.
  • Explore different angles that you might not have considered.
  • Add to your list of storytelling techniques.
  • Enjoy opportunities to use others as a sounding board for new story ideas or challenges in current works.



  • We promote a professional, structured, and respectful environment that is both honest and constructive.
  • All types of writing are welcome! Many of our members are also involved in the NWFLWG and include writers of literary fiction, fantasy/sci-fi, non-fiction, autobiographies, poetry, screenplays, and more.
  • Our group includes all experience levels, from published authors to newcomers putting their first ideas to paper.
  • We read all lengths of manuscripts, from short stories to full-length novels.

Meeting Schedule:

  • We meet at 6 pm every Tuesday at Books-a-Million (6235 North Davis Highway, Pensacola, FL 32504)
  • Weekly submissions are limited to around 15 double-spaced pages or 3000 words. Of course, don't just cut off mid-sentence. If you have to go over a little bit to finish a chapter or scene, that's perfectly fine.
  • Visit (and join!) our Facebook Group

    We're there until 8 pm, so if you wanted to swing by late it's fine. Did you have any pieces you wanted us to look at this week or did you want to meet us in person and see how things work before sending stuff out? If you have something you can email it to me, and I can forward it to everyone else so we can have notes ready for you. Whatever the case we're looking forward to seeing you!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
