Critiquing novels, short stories, and sentences of all sizes! We are a group of writers, some published, some not, all working on a Big Project--a novel, a short story collection, that first big publishing break. We believe that any genre can be literary and any writer's voice can be polished with time and dedication. We also believe in thoughtful and thorough critiques; we don't pull any punches, but we'll also tell you at least one thing we liked. This group may be especially helpful for you if you are writing or editing your first novel, or if you have some unpublished short stories that need fresh eyes.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
