Answering the LadiesWhoCritique.com

Laura Pepper Wu is the author of Wow! Glowing Bride in 30 Days and The Stress-Free Guide to Leaving Japan. She’s also the co-creator of the LadiesWhoCritique.com writing forum.

If you’re a creative writer (age 16 or older) who doesn’t belong to a critique group, let me recommend LadiesWhoCritique.com. It’s a straightforward group with a generous attitude, and they have plans to work with gentlemen who critique before long.

Obtaining unbiased feedback on their manuscripts is the step aspiring authors skip more often than any other crucial phase of their career development. I’m more likely to encounter a writer with an online platform than one who has obtained forthright criticism and then revised his or her work before contacting me about representation.

This week, and again in January, I’ll be answering a few questions from members of LadiesWhoCritique.com who want to know more about working with a literary agent. Take a look at their blog and add your comments.

If you don’t happen to find the perfect critique partner for your subgenre over in Laura’s forum, then you can always check the list of online critique groups here at Treated & Released. No excuses. It’s a sensible new year’s resolution for a serious writer.

    A marvelous idea! People ask me all the time about critique groups. I now have a great reference for them!

    Thanks for spreading the word, Sylvia. There are few obstacles to participation these days, and critique groups can help writers expand their professional networks.
