WOW and The Great Critter Search

Over the past few months, I’ve had a few writers ask me about my writers’ support group Writers on Writing. Some have been excited about the networking opportunity from WOW, while others were disappointed when I explained critiques were not permitted on the loop. WOW is all about supporting writers through their journey. We give cyber hugs when someone’s been rejected, celebrate the acquisition of an agent, and party with the sales or releases of new books. We also love to talk about writing. We draw attention to great blogs, announce irresistible online writing classes, and point the way to some eye-catching articles about the craft or industry. If this sounds interesting, send me an e-mail to lynnette_labelle (at) hotmail (dot) com. Make sure you spell my name with two n’s or I won’t get your message. Please put “WOW” in the subject so I know it’s not spam.

This brings me back to the writers who were really looking for an online critique group. Since I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve had two contests in search of writers for my own critique group. At the moment, we don’t have any openings, so this isn’t another one of those contests. Instead, I thought I’d take the time to reach out to fellow writers in search of a critique group or partner and help them find their way to each other. If you or someone you know is on the lookout for a crit friend, then read yesterday’s post for details and please spread the word. The more writers I have “on the table”, the better the matches will be.

For those of you not on the great critter search, how’s your writing going?

  4. Is there anything of more value to a writer than her critique group? I don't think I'd have ever been published without one. Good for you for supporting your fellow writers with WOW and with critiquing.

  5. I hope you are able to match some writers. I'm in the group that formed from Roni's post, and I LOVE it.

  6. Got your link up at my place today along with an article I wrote called Writing Group Wizardry.

    Is #CritGroup a Twitter trending topic? LOL. Seems the blogs are all abuzz on the topic. :)
