At the December meeting of the MWA-Montgomery, Carolee Noury presented tips and best practices for giving and receiving critique. She also provided some very helpful resources for finding critique partners and forming critique groups.
Here are the resources from Carolee’s handout. You can also find them located permanently on our Resources page.

Online Critique Groups and Resources
“Critique Circle is an online writing workshop for all authors, whether they write literary fiction, genre fiction, articles or short stories.”
“The ultimate goal of Critters is to help improve your craft, not only by having your work dissected by other members, but also by learning to dissect your own work (by, of course, dissecting others).”
