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.

    I can't wait to get some stuff passed my way so I can contribute! Everyone was really respectful, the comments were intelligent and thoughtful, and the material seemed very interesting!

    Hi, I'm brand new and will try to make it to the meeting today but since it is short notice for me (I just joined), I may not be able to. Either way, I was curious about how we "submit" our work. Do we print up copies for everyone or just swap with whoever's closest? Do we bring red pens or sticky notes? Just curious so I don't show up poorly prepared. Thanks in advance!

      Hello, Rebecca. We do ask prospective members to attend at least one meeting to see if our group is for you. After that, you are free to join our email list. Each week we have three submissions that we review, taking turns with each others' work. How you choose to review it is up to you and what your personal preference is.

    Hi everyone, due to my lack of current jobs, I won't be attending for the forseeable future. I live in Pace, and I just can't afford the gas. I will miss reading your wonderful work.
