Critique Groups

An integral part of being a successful author is belonging to an active critique group.

An active critique group is an organized, managed, group of writers that commit to meet regularly and provide constructive criticism and feedback on each others writing.

Each critique group set their own rules on how they operate, how and when they accept members, and the genres they embrace.
