Critique groups are not one-size-fits-all. While trust and respect are key to any successful critique group, there is more than one way to run them. Author Debbi Michiko Florence shares from over 15 years of experience of leading and participating in critique groups, and also offers alternatives and additions such as writing partners and beta readers. Best practices will be discussed. Bring a one page double-spaced writing sample for peer critique to put methods into practice.
