Critique Groups: Finding One That's Right for You with Speaker Q&A

Audience: All Levels

Should I join a critique group? Where can I find one? How do I know if it’s right for me?

Not every group, whether in person or online, is right for every writer, so the answers to these questions and many others can be key to deciding whether any group or site you do find will help you become a better writer.

By the end of this session, you'll learn:

  • How your needs and preferences as a writer play an important part in deciding whether to join a critique group or online site or not;
  • How to find groups or sites if you decide you want to try any out, or find a new one—even create your own in-person group; and
  • How to evaluate the groups and/or sites you find to determine whether they’re a good fit for you.
