What we're about

Welcome to Cleveland Writers’ Critique Circle! If you’re checking us out, chances are you love to write. That’s awesome because so do we! If you’ve spent any modicum of time putting words to paper, you’ve probably experienced that all-too-familiar self-doubt. You know the feeling…when every single sentence just seems wrong; when you want to throw that laptop out the window never to retrieve it. Or perhaps, you’ve finished that short story, essay, or novel, convinced the world will be so moved by your literary genius, only to receive one rejection after another. We have so much in common!

Cleveland Writers’ Critique Circle is a peer-to-peer writing critique group, offering constructive feedback, support, and resources to help strengthen your work. Whether you’ve been writing for years or have written your first piece or just have a great idea you’d love to brainstorm, you’ll be sure to find an honest, straight-forward critique a must.

We meet twice a month and are looking for dedicated writers who could commit to at least once per month for consistency.

If this sounds like what you need, we’d love to see you at our next meeting!

Get out of your own head and join us!
