StoryADay Critique Week
It can be hard to find a great critique group, but it usually works out well when
- You trust the organizer
- The group has clear goals and a clear timeline
- Everyone is writing the same thing (in this case: short stories)
- The group has a clear code of conduct and an active leader.
I run critique groups three times a year, and you're invited!
THE CURRENT CRITIQUE WEEK IS CLOSED
Add yourself to the waitlist so you don't miss out next time!
"The feedback I got from Julie alone was worth more than the price of the class, but I got huge value also from the lesson material and other participants."
- J. M. Randolph
"The feedback was fantastic and really helped me focus on where my first-draft weaknesses are and how to correct them in revision."
- Fleet Sparrow
"The class members' critiques were helpful, but Julie's critique alone was invaluable! I will apply all that I've learned in this course to all of my writings. Well-worth it."
"I always sign up the minute Critique Week opens.
The feedback is so helpful, and the community is always great. I love the chance to read other people’s stories, and now Reading Week offers the chance to see how some of them grow!"
- Laura Jane Swanson
"Critique Week reminds me that I really am a writer and that I can make mistakes and still be a writer with a story people want to read.
It also introduces me to other writers I want to root for."
- Marta Pelrine-Bacon
"This is a great group and Julie's attention to detail, organizational skills, and her encouragement in each writer's work makes this exercise a valuable tool in increasing my skill as a writer."
- Leslie Stack
ARE YOU READY TO TAKE YOUR WRITING FURTHER?
"Amazing feedback from Julie!"
"The class gave me a valuable insight into how my writing will be perceived by future readers. The critiques will help with me editing process."
"I had no idea what to expect but was happy with how things went. People saw things in my work that I had overlooked and thinking about how other people wrote helped me see my own story differently.
