Many writing groups don’t provide an ideal environment for having your creative work effectively critiqued, which is such an essential part of producing your next great novel. This group makes this its primary goal.

Members submit short to medium pieces (chapters mainly) in advance of any meeting which are be distributed over e-mail to all who sign up to attend. The participants prepare positive review on each other submissions for discussion in the group. This can be a combination of detailed spelling and grammar check (spag) and\or more general comments about plot, scene building, characters, POV and dialogue.

Not sure how to critique effectively? There’ll be space for us to learn and all feedback will make us stronger. Don’t be shy, your work needs us.
