Why Join A Critique Group?

There are many reasons to join a critique group.

1. Community
Writing is a lonely occupation. Having like-minded people to fellowship with is the reason some decide to join a critique group.

2. Understanding What You Do
Most of us acknowledge that many people don’t really “get” what we do. Some join a critique group because they want to be around people who understand what being a writer is all about.

3. To Learn
Many “newbies” join a critque group hoping to glean information from those who have traveled the road a little longer than they have and can help them avoid pitfalls.

4. To Receive encouragement
Some join a critque group to have people who will hold them accountable and give them encouragement when they are down or discouraged.

5. To Hone Their Craft
Many join a critque group to have people who will help them develop the best material possible before they send their material out.

All of these are great reasons to join a critique group. Most who do take the plunge and join a group find that a sense of family develops. You really care about each other, pray for each other, and rejoice when one of the “family” succeeds.

I personally treasure all those who are part of my critique group. If I were to have a need, they would be the first I would go to. We have become that close.

I encourage you to find a critique group. You will be a better writer and person if you find the right one. I pray you are as blessed as I have been in finding such a special group.

Thankful for my critique group, Gloria
