How Critique Groups Operate and Why You Should Join One

Jennifer Hurlburt discusses what critique groups are and things to consider.  In order to have the most positive experience as you seek a critique group, think about what you are hoping to get out of a critique group. It is very important to be clear with your critique group about what you would like to gain. While some writers want intense, line-by-line analysis of their work, others simply hope to learn how readers are reacting emotionally to their story.
Consider these questions :  
  • What type of feedback are you looking for? 
  • How much time are you able to give to reading the work of your group members, so that you may provide valuable feedback to them?
  • Would you prefer a group that meets during the day, or in the evening?
  • Do you require a group that meets within a short distance of your home?
  • Or are you willing to drive across town?


Energy was high as CWC members communicated with one another and found other members interested in their genres!
