What is Critique Circle all about? What do our members say? Some Statistics
I keep coming back to CC
I have visited around to other critique sites, but have not found one as easy to work with and with the best mix of writers as here on Critique Circle. The format allows me to test my writing skills through several different venues. Unlike other sites, CC allows me control over who I want to critique my work. I've recieved the best mix of positive and constructive feedback for my writing without feeling ridiculed or judged. I have even connected with some good writing buddies who I now correspond with outside of CC. I love the option to set up my own queue and manage it my way. The writing exercises and tools are always fun too and have inspired me to create new scenes for my WIP.

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.
