I’m a member of the critique group Dreaming in Ink Writers Workshop.
Critiques are required to make sure everyone gives as well as receives. I’m enjoying the community, and the monthly challenges that push me to achieve. In reviewing other member’s writing, I have been enlightened to issues in my own. And I’ve received some great, well-balanced, helpful reviews.
As of the last count, there are 13 openings! The group has a limited size, to give a sense of community. You must be at least 18 to join. Basic guidelines can be found here: http://community.livejournal.com/diiww/632.html. Feel free to apply if you like what you see.
