Criticism

What's a good place to get a literary critique? I want some people to read what I've written so far and give me their thoughts.


Hopefully without too much name calling :-P


Try critiquecircle.com


Going there now. Thanks Chris.


I'm not familiar with critiquecircle.com, but I do recommend critique groups per se. For in-person groups, check your local writing organizations. The one I belong to, the Greater Los Angeles Writers Society, or GLAWS ( http://www.glaws.org/ ), has genre groups so you can have your stuff read by, say, just mystery writers, or just science fiction/fantasy/horror writers . . .


Absolutely no nastiness allowed, not in our groups nor, I would think, in any others.

I definitely second Critique Circle. I'm using them right now for my science fiction novel (though not for my serial).
