Critique Groups

One of the benefits of becoming a member ot the Charlotte Writers Club is the opportunity to particpate in a writing Critique Group.  All around the Charlotte area, small groups of writers, based on genre, meet to offer feedback to each other.  Every group works independently with their own set of rules and schedule.

Listed below are the available groups.  You can choose a group, matching your interest, and contact the leader directly by email, just click on their name to open an email. If your genre is not listed or you have additional questions, please contact Critique Groups Coordinator. If current groups are full, the Coordinator can help to form new groups.

Currently due to COVID-19 most groups will remain virtual - most using ZOOM meetings.
