I'm looking for a couple of people who are willing to become a part of a critique group. I would like to keep it small and form a lasting camaraderie with a few authors interested in YA fiction.
Please leave your name if you are interested. We can share email information from there.
I don't know what you mean by "critique group". I do host guest reviews on my blog, some of them even became regular features.
A critique group or partner reviews your manuscript and offers valuable feedback.
Try www.critiquecircle.com It's free and you can post small portions of your MS at a time for review by many other authors. (I think you can pay to post more often, but I never did). As you start getting feedback, you can contact those who have helped you to see if they are interested in whole manuscript swapping.
I did this with my first novel and was happy with the results. I did about 5 chapters that we reviewed by the general forum and found 2-3 people to trade manuscripts with.
Thanks, Jennifer. This is good advice.
Good luck to you too.
