I love CC
Critique Circle is the best writing website EVER! I feel so lucky to have found it. Everyone is so nice and fair. You write your stories, and people actually crit them for you within a reasonable time. I was new and posted a story the same week. I got 6 crits in 2 days! I posted my second story about a month and the same! Everyone is sooo helpful and nice. There are also people who will give you a straight honest crit if you ask. Here at Critique Circle, you also learn how to crit. The more you crit and get crits, the more you learn. It's been an awesome experience for me as a serious writer. My little 11 year old sister even joined! She loves it too. It's an all around great environment.

Critique Circle is an online writing workshop for all authors, whether they write literary fiction, genre fiction, articles or short stories. Our purpose is to provide a place for writers to give and receive feedback on their work, and thereby learn from one another. The Critique Circle also includes forums as well as helpful writing tools for manuscript progress, submission tracking, character generation and more.
Workshops can be an invaluable resource to writers as they are a great way to get feedback and suggestions on their manuscripts, as well as providing a social forum for interaction with other writers. Online workshops such as the Critique Circle have the added advantage of being accessible at any time and from any location regardless of geography.
Membership to the Critique Circle is free and we welcome everyone interested in using an online forum to improve their writing skills while helping others improve theirs. Critique Circle is open to all genres, including science-fiction, fantasy, romance, children's novels, horror and suspense.
We've endeavored to make Critique Circle as writer-friendly and secure as possible. People have full control over their submissions, including the ability to either hide them from all other users or delete them at any time. People can also choose to have the stories only visible to those who regularly critique, or those who have critted in the past month. We believe this feature will make people feel more secure about using the critique forum.
Those supporting the Critique Circle also have the option to form their own private critique groups, integrated into the global critique system.

It's the golden goose of the writing business: a qualified critter who reads the whole novel. Every writer wants them, but few are able to find them. What makes a critter walk away from a novel? What can writers do to prevent it? [more...]
