REAL WRITERS CRITIQUE XCHANGE

FICTION ONLY

◊  ◊  ◊

When is a writing group not a group?  

When writers meet only AS NEEDED
 
HOW IT WORKS
 
You have written a short story or a novel, and would appreciate feedback from a writer 
as experienced as yourself (i.e. familiar with creative writing and publishing procedures).  
However, committing to a fixed schedule is not convenient for you.
 

Next step:  email Molly at RealWriters CritiqueXchange@gmail.com.

This is the online version.  In-person meetings arranged upon request.  
 
1.  Have a MS up to 2500 words ready when you apply for a RWCX critique session, or state you wish to comment only.  Molly will circulate a list of participants.
2.  Up to four MS admitted per session, first come first served.  Over four will be placed on a waiting list for the next session.
3.  Email your MS (as an attachment) to everyone on the list.  Show word count on first page of MS.
4.  Email all of your critiques to everyone on the list as well.  Sharing is the value of a good meeting.
5.  MS not received within one week of applying to RWCX will be placed on a waiting list for the next session.
 
Any questions?
1.  To join a RWCX session, have a MS up to 2500 words ready, 
 - or - state if you wish to comment only
Word count may be exceeded if total per session is under 100K words.
 
2.  Show word count on title page; title and numbers on Page 2 to end.
If entering your story in a contest, you may omit your name on the MS.
 
3.  Up to four MS are accepted per session.  
Extras are placed on a waiting list for the next session.
One rewrite is accepted in a future RWCX session if needed.
 
4.  Email your MS as a PDF attachment to RealWritersCritiqueXchange@gmail.com.
PDF format is required, as it takes up 1/7 the space of Word.
RWCX Coordinator locates participants, and forwards the MS to all who respond.
 
5.  Critiques are emailed to the author with a copy to each participant (no attachments).  
RWCX is not intended for critiques involving attachments.
 
6.  If unable to complete your critique within one week, 
please advise RWCX in case alternates wish to participate.
