Wanna join a critique group for short stories for Woman's Mags?
For some years I've been a member of an online critique group for SF and fantasy. It's worked really well, and most of us got published. I'd like a similar group to swap critiques aimed at women's magazines, like "Take a Break" and Women's Weekly".
Does anyone know of such a group which considers new members? Or would anyone like to join me in one?
Ideally, I'm looking for people who:
can be honest without being cruel ("I didn't find your character all that interesting" rather than, "Well that was boring!")
are fairly serious about improving their writing
will contribute roughly as many critiques as they receive without having to be nagged.
I created a group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WomensFictionCritiques. Please come and join me, because I'm feeling lonely.
