What a blessing a critique group can be! I can visit my monthly meeting with my fist full of rejection notices and my chin down to my knees and at the end of our time together I waltz away with my head up high. The members love to hear what new things I’ve written and are full of encouragement and helpful suggestions.
Before I joined the group I had published very few things, but with their expertise and shared publishing tips I have become more successful. In turn I enjoy encouraging others and sharing my own tips.
