What is Critique Circle all about? What do our members say? Some Statistics
The best resource for writers since writing excuses
Critique circle is a wonderful website that has allowed me to expand my writing style and learn so many new tricks.
The forums are 90% useful, but you will spend at least 70% of your time just sitting in the procrastination lounge... Lol, it's what I do between classes at work.
Getting to critique other people who write in the same Genre as you will allow you to see how they approach writing, learn from their strong points, point out their weak points with your strengths and everyone benefits. They come back to critique your story, and the same thing is exchanged, but the other way.
This has helped my writing by leaps and bounds. It is a fantastic resource, and everyone should try it out!

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.
