We are a group of experienced fiction writers serious about perfecting our craft and being traditionally published. We meet once a week to read aloud and seriously critique original works of fictional short stories, novellas, and those working on full-length novels. We might be a good fit for your work if...
1) You write fiction. We do NOT critique memoirs, non-fiction, newsletters, children's or picture books.
2) You've been writing long enough to be familiar with the fundamentals of storytelling: how to structure a novel/ story, the inciting incident, first and second plot points, etc.
3) You are looking for straight, honest feedback for your work. We are a critique group. If you're looking for a group that meets to talk about writing/ publishing, or you seeking only praise for your writing, we are NOT the group for you.
BUT... if you are looking to becoming a better writer and are aiming to be competitive in today's publishing market, please read the file "Common mistakes in beginning a story," answer some question so we can learn more about you, and then welcome aboard! We look forward to meeting you. :)
