Critique Chat!

Wouldn't it be great to get a critique from a bunch of other writers? This is your chance!

We'll be doing critiques right in the chatroom for this chat. Details on how to get in on the action will be emailed to all subscribers the Friday before the chat. Make sure you're signed up for the mailing list, and get your short (300 word max) submission polished up! (Sign up for our mailing list here. ) DON'T submit until you get the email!

I strongly suggest you submit polished work. Most of our chatters are aiming for publication. To get there, you have to be able to handle honest critiques. I will not allow personal attacks, but problems in the writing will be openly discussed.

If you are not in attendance, your submission will be skipped. It's a waste of everyone's time to critique something if the author isn't there to hear it.

 

Fiction, nonfic, essay, query letter...it doesn't matter. I recommend trying to get an entire scene into 300 words. Full scenes get better crits.
 
Why only 300 words? More than that will scroll off the screen too quickly. People need to be able to read it, to give a good crit.

Get ready, get set...
