Last year we stumbled over a great new way to find critique partners. The response was so positive we are running this again!

Finding a critique partner can be one of the most difficult parts of writing, but having a crit partner that understands your work - and you - can make the difference between writing success and limping along. Let's face it...we've all tried different ways to find crit partners and found that each of them just doesn't hit the mark. After trying time and again to find a critique partner, many of us left are asking the same questions.
  • How do you find someone who writes like you?
  • Who shares your writing goals and is willing to help you while you help them?
We're taking a page from one of the most successful dating experiences: Speed Dating! During the months of January and February we will have an event that matches you with a series of crit partners for one week of guided critiquing activities! Then we'll go to the next partner and critique again. By the end of the event, you will have critiqued and had your work critiqued by 5 people who, like you, are looking for that perfect critique partner. Will you find a match? We can't say for sure, but we can say that we will provide a safe, fun and mentored way to work through the process!

Come join us for two months of Crit Speed Dating and find your match!

I agree with Jan, I enjoyed the class and the exchanges that I did receive, but there wasn't enough time to interact with everyone (as a couple of my potential partners couldn't get back to me due to work/life issues). Thanks though and I would be interested again if you do it in the summer.
This was a good class, but I don't feel like I walked away with a critique partner. I think there could have been more communication between the critiquers and that might have helped. I enjoyed the pieces I critiqued.
