Virtual Writers Critique Group

Reviews can be critical for a writer, yet hard to come by for those unable to participate in a local group. This group was founded to provide all SheWrites members with access to feedback no matter where they might call home.

While I appear to have no problems writing stories, I still run into problems in three major areas.

Welcome to the novelist group, Heather. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.
