A more advanced group for dedicated writers.

Our focus in on the writing itself. Our group is for those who wish to hone writing skills and practice storytelling techniques, the more subtle elements of prose style. We'll critique anything from the single opening line of your novel or short story to paragraphs and full novel chapters. Submit whatever you're working on, whatever you're experimenting with. If you seek publication, your writing must be outstanding. We're here to help.
