Critique Circle is Great!
I am so happy to have found Critique Circle. I joined it only recently, and think it's great! It has helped me to learn to accept all kinds of criticism on my stories as well as how I can edit, revise, and make my writing better! Not only can you critique and receive critiques, but also there are forums, exercises, messaging, and helpful things like that. In the forums you can simply chat, you can research, you can ask specific questions, or you can submit poetry.
The age range among members is very broad, so you can find people close to your age to exchange messages with. I've made new friends here and enjoy Critique Circle very, very much!
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.
