Critique Groups

Can’t find a critique group that’s in your area or in your genre? Start one of your own!

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

Join a Critique Group!

Small, personal critique groups can be the best way to improve your writing.

If you’re new to critique, joining an existing group is usually the best approach. You can later branch out and establish a new group that may better suit your needs. That said, if you can’t find a group that works for you or if the ones you try don’t fit your needs – start a group!

All Critique Groups are online throughout the pandemic

Throughout the ongoing covid 19 pandemic, Willamette Writers is offering to connect writers to critique groups hosted online via Zoom or similar platforms. Willamette Writers programming will remain exclusively online until at least the end of 2021, and there are currently plans to reassess going back to in person programming in 2022.

To find out about our online Critique Groups, please email, and our volunteers would be delighted to help you find a group that’s right for you!
