Speed City Sisters in Crime Critique Group
Critique Group Guidelines
The group meets at 10 a.m. the fourth Saturday via a Zoom connection.
Send your stories or chapters — 20 pages max — to Brenda Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week before the meeting so members have time to read and critique.
Send a note to Russ Eberhart at email@example.com to get your name on the invitation list to the Zoom meeting.
We have 60 minutes to critique the monthly submissions and will divide that number approximately by the number of submissions.
There will be a limit of 20 pages for submission, but it's okay if there's another page or two to a chapter.
You may request what type of feedback you would like:
The writer being critiqued will remain silent throughout the critique process. At the conclusion of the critiques, you will have approximately five minutes to comment or ask questions.
Remember, it's your work being critiqued and your decision whether or not you make changes based on the critiques. However, if more than one person brings up the same problems with your manuscript, it might be wise to take another look at those areas.
Only constructive criticism will be allowed.
Send your submission for critique with enough time for the members of the the group to read them--a week or two is okay.
Send requests for membership in the critique group and submissions to Brenda Stewart - firstname.lastname@example.org
She will send your submission to all members of the group. She will need the email address you prefer to use.
