Why a critique group?
We all need motivation to persevere. We take time from our writing because we need:
- Deadlines and accountability. A commitment on the calendar to submit something of ours to other writers helps us become professional.
- Feedback. This is the basic benefit of a writers group. On our own with no input from other writers, we have little direction and little confidence in our work.
What’s our Mission?
- How will we limit our membership? Will we invite members that complement our writing level and genre, and belong to the same denomination or social group? Or open the group to all writers? Keep in mind that we are forming temporary writing communities with lasting relationships.
- How will membership develop? By invitation or as a ministry of encouragement for writers?
