Discover the value of peer feedback for your writing.
The good outcome of the common shared critique of our writing is expressed in writer quotes, purpose statements and expressed mission:
- The purpose of a writing group is encouragement and improvement for all members.
- To encourage one another in our writing endeavors and to educate writers, both fiction and nonfiction, on the craft and business of writing.
- We’re intensely focused, motivated writers who understand the importance of constructive criticism and honesty and consider the knowledge we gain from hearing critiques of other members’ work just as educational as hearing critiques of our own work…
The writing skills we learn from each other due to the eclectic cross-genre perspectives and diverse styles of the members is invaluable, an experience that can’t be taught by any conventional research or study methods.
