Hi guys

There's a more formal critique group that's hidden from view, and that's what the message relates to.  It's formal in the way that critiques are standardised to follow a marking template, there's one session per month (beginning on the first of each month) and, in return for having your story critiqued by other members (usually at least four crits), you are expected to critique at least four of the stories yourself.

If you want serious feedback and you're prepared to do some work, that's the place, but you'll probably still get a brief comment in the dark fiction area of the forum, if you don't have time to participate.  The only way you can get into the formal group is by asking me for entry, so if you want to give it a try let me know and I'll give you access. :smiley:

Hi blunt

thanks for letting me know, still trying to find my way round the site.  I would like to have a go with the formal crtique section if thats okay with you...?  I've not critiqued anyone's work before as being a beginner i dont feel in the postition to make those kind of comments yet.  Got to start somewhere i suppose...

cheers

Jo

Yep - doing the crits is a good way to start, I think.  I'll let you in for a look around, so you can familiarise yourself with the crit template and read some of the craft discussions, but you won't be able to post a story until the next session begins on December 1st.  By all means feel free to join in with any discussions that are going on, or begin one of your own if you like :smiley:
