What we're about

Calling all Writers!

The South Orange County Critique (SOCC) group was established in 1999 and has helped writers improve their craft for 17 years. We are looking for writers in the area to contribute and benefit from experienced and serious criticism of their work.

Our group reviews submissions for 2-3 weeks before offering criticisms, allowing us to work with longer submissions and offer better analysis. Our analysis is always candid, constructive, and geared toward finding ways to improve.

If you would like to visit to see how we operate, we normally meet on 2nd and 4th Mondays from 6:30-8:30. Check the schedule for location and details.
