‘Find a Writing Buddy’ is moving to Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/187001442008233/
THE BAD NEWS
Unfortunately some writers seeking a buddy have been receiving unwanted attention so a week from today, 25 June 2018, I’ll be deleting all the comments from this blog page, and moving ‘Find a Writing Buddy’ to Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/187001442008233/
THE GOOD NEWS
You’ll be able to find a critique partner/writing buddy on the Facebook group. This will be a secret group so all members will be pre approved. There will also be posts to help you improve your writing skills.
This group is to help aspiring and emerging writers to network and get useful, constructive and critical feedback
It is NOT for people who want their work proofread or are looking for co-writers.
Please be professional and respectful at all times.
NOTE: Your writing buddy doesn’t have to live near you. You can crit each other’s work and help each other online:) Also, if their genre isn’t quite the same as yours…particularly YA, that doesn’t really matter either. The main thing is that they understand what you are writing and have written similar length works. For example if you write novels, it’s best to find a crit buddy who has written novels so that they understand what it takes to plot and put together a work of that length.
If you want to find a writing partner/crit buddy/beta reader, here’s what to do:
- Go to Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/187001442008233/
- Request to join the Group.
- Once you have been approved, post your writer details including genre you write in, publishing experience and why you want a critique partner.
- Give links for your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts.
Happy writing and I hope you find the writing buddy of your dreams.
Please feel free to share this blog page through Facebook, Twitter etc. I want to help as many writers as possible find a crit buddy.
