read & critiques

Our read and critique groups are a small collection of writers who encourage and provide regular help to one other.

Read & Critiques.

What Is a Read & Critique?

Any kind of writing requires work and effort, but joining a read and critique group can move you in the right direction. Joining a group means making a commitment to write something each month, polish it, and share it with the group. Also, joining means making a commitment to carefully critique the other members’ manuscripts and come prepared to help others. Whether you are working on a new piece already, want to start a new project, or need to revise an existing manuscript, the read and critique experience may be just for you.

How Do I Join?

These are ongoing read & critique groups with limited registration. Members pay monthly for their ongoing participation. Members are required to pay for the entire month regardless of how many sessions they attend. In Read & Critiques with waitlists, participants must pay for missed months to keep their place.

 

To pay monthly by PayPal after initial registration, set up your payment to be issued to register@sandiegowriters.org noting the instructor and Read & Critique time. Please include this information in the subject line of check payments as well.

Alternatives

Please note that if you are looking for a group that offers you the chance to write free from editing or critique, you should join one of our writing and reading groups.
