Village Writers' CRITIQUE GROUPS

Village Writers’ Critique Group meets from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of each month at the Chamber of Commerce office near the West Gate.

Material for the critique is usually 2,000 words or less, emailed in a .pdf format to all members of the group by the end of the week before the meeting. Members print each manuscript they receive and read each piece carefully


Critiques are intended to be constructive and helpful, always focused on the work, not the writer. Copy editing/formatting aid is written on the material and brought to the meeting but not discussed in any detail.

Oral critique at the meeting concerns character development,  plot, reader interest, etc.

For more information about the group, contact Madelyn Young
