Writers need critique partners. As well-meaning as beta readers may be, only another writer can really tell us what we need to know about our work. But many writers are reluctant to join a critique group because they’ve heard horror stories or have had a bad experience themselves. This workshop will equip writers to find or form a critique group, and provide suggestions on how to give meaningful critiques that identify problems without hurting feelings. Joining a good critique group is one of the most beneficial things a writer can do, but only if the group is founded on trust and civility.
