women's fiction, Contemporary Fiction, Historical Fiction, Short Stories, adult fiction
Let's set these together. Ideas: improve craft, make our stories better, share work more frequently.
Please share a short writing sample (250 words or less). You're welcome to trial the group and decide whether it is a fit for you.
We're especially interested in members who are pursuing the study of craft and are willing to discuss craft topics in the group and/or share resources together. For critiques, we're looking for people who can give feedback at the story level -- plot, characters, pacing, dialogue. Grammar and spelling comments are optional. Members should be prepared to make inline comments and share at minimum a paragraph of feedback. Critiques do not need to be comprehensive, but they should also not be a 1-2 sentence reaction.
Because this is a small group, participation by everyone is important. If you can't make a submission date, please plan to critique the submissions anyway. If the load becomes too much for the group, we will cap the members at a lower number than our current max (5).
