The Critique Group

Welcome to the Evanston Writers Workshop Critique Group.  One of two foundational programs of EWW, the Critique Group is a group of professional and aspiring writers who help each other polish their writing.  Through workshop-style critique, writers have the opportunity to receive direct feedback from attentive readers who understand the craft of writing.  For more information, as well as submission guidelines and requirements, please visit our "About Us" page, here.

Friendly reminder:  please have your submissions uploaded by the Friday (midnight) before the meeting.

    Deb: John McPhee is a great fan of pencils and index cards. So you would be in good company.

    The criticism is fair and always constructive.

      I found a three pack of the pencils yesterday. Will be using them today. Thanks for the tip. They did not offer them in anything other than a three pack with sharpener and I only need one sharpener. Have you found them in packs without sharpeners and with more content?

      Yes, they only come with sharpeners. Maybe we can share our extra pencils & sharpeners with others. Good to have lots of index cards around to jot notes on with these pencils. You can write a note with these soft led pencils with only one hand since you don't need another one to hold the paper, unlike using a pen. Looking FW to seeing the next part of your story.

    For those who have work shopped a novel, either here or somewhere else, could you give me any feedback, advice, or impressions about how it went (or is currently going) for you? I am currently writing something that will probably be novel length, and have wondered if there's anything I should be thinking of in preparing to submit it for critique.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
