Online Critique Groups

Critique groups are a great way to develop your craft while connecting with your community.

Looking for help with a writing project? Want to improve your craft?

Join an Online Critique Group!

Small, personal critique groups can be the best way to improve your writing. We have groups available across genre, from fiction to screenwriting to poetry to non-fiction and more!

General details (Varies from group to group)

Please note, these groups are not facilitated by Willamette Writers. Willamette Writers helps manage critique group Zoom meetings and placement, but these groups are run by members. Each group has their own rules. Willamette Writers may help schedule these meetings, but they are run by group leaders. We will help you get connected to a group if we can, based on availability. Most meetings are weekly and in the evening hours.

NOTE: We provide online critique group connections for Willamette Writers members.
