Critique

Monthly Critique Meetings:

We meet monthly to critique each other’s work in progress, hear the latest updates and training from the writing world, celebrate our successes, and offer encouragement.

Only members may be critiqued. 

Non-members are invited to observe for two free visits. Observing twice gives you the opportunity to determine if we’re the group for you and learn our system. 

You do not have to wait to join, however. Click to Join.
