The Writing & Critique Group Survival Guide

How to Give and Receive Feedback, Self Edit, and Make Revisions

by Becky Levine

Writer’s Digest Books announces the publication of The Writing & Critique Group Survival Guide, the best way to create a respectful, productive writing or critique group, discussing all the important details of finding a group, running a critique meeting, and building a group that will evolve with its members.

Each chapter, whether discussing plot or character or voice, teaches the writer how to read for a critique, learn from criticism, organize and prioritize feedback, revise based on the specific feedback they receive, and more.

Perfect for writers and creative-writing students, this book offers tangible instruction on how to spot legitimate problems in any genre and how to give and apply feedback in a helpful and meaningful way.
