Novels (Literary, Upmarket, Relationship fiction (sometimes called Women’s Fiction), Historical fiction)


Young Adult (Contemporary fiction, Historical Fiction)


To support fellow fiction writers with kind, encouraging, constructive feedback.

What we're looking for in members

Commitment! The goal is to have a maximum of five members and work through our novels chapter by chapter.

Inactivity Policy

Life happens but we ask as a courtesy that members alert the group if they will miss a round of critiques. If a group member is consistently missing critique periods, that member may need to bow out until they are able to commit more fully.
