Picture Books: Rhyme, Rhyme, Rhyme • Last activity 17/Jun

Small group of picture book authors looking to actively submit work and give critiques to fellow members. We are a group of authors who are striving to get published and/or get an agent and who need to hone our skills in rhyme for the PB level reader. We will submit on a monthly basis at least and hope to provide each other with raw and honest critiques that are also relevant and respectful.

Genres

Children's

Picture Books (Fiction, Nonfiction)

Goals

One submission per month, submitted the first week of the month. While members may not have material to share each month, we ask for commitment to critiquing those stories that have been shared in a given month. We know writers have works in progress and might not churn out stories every month, and so we welcome stories in progress, incomplete works, vignettes, and even drafts and pitch ideas for stories. We also understand the writer may simply not have material each and every month to share and respect that creativity cannot be forced. HOWEVER, we ask for critiques for each work of that month by every member in the group. Critiques should be completed by the end of the month through the first couple of days into the next month. Critiques are the gist of what this group is about. Critiques can jump start ideas and new paths for storylines. Critiques can help writers with rhyme technique and other structural issues. And most of all, critiques provide support to the writers.
