Critique Groups

survivalguideI’m currently editing a book called The Writing and Critique Group Survival Guide by Becky Levine.

It’s started me thinking about all of the “easy” ways that writers seek out feedback for their projects. Do you only show your work to friends and family? Do you prefer to have something “completely finished” before you show anyone? It’s easy to fall into those traps, but if you’re serious about being successful, it’s important to make sure that you have someone to show your work to as it is in progress–someone who will give you honest feedback (whether you find a writing group–either locally or online–to join, or just find another serious writer to compare ideas with).

Check out this interview with Becky Levine about her forthcoming book.
