There is a group of experienced, friendly writers, in an existing critique group in the West Valley, that is seeking new members.
The purpose of this critique group is to have each members’ work honestly critiqued, in the interest of allowing and assisting each member to improve their work.
The criteria for new members is that they have begun to write and are looking to improve their writing. Applicants must be serious about their writing. They must be willing to accept positive, honest criticism of their writing from the other members of the group. Negative criticism and personal criticism are not encouraged or permitted.
This group meets twice a month, on the second and fourth Saturdays. Each member submits about five pages of writing to the other members, the writing is read and accessed and at the next meeting the author reads it aloud and receives comments from the other members. This is an ongoing process.
Some current members have published works but having been previously published work is not a criterion for membership in the group.
Interested persons should submit a short biography, and three to five pages of work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prospective new members will be interviewed Jan. 16, 2021.
