Finding A Critique Partner/Writing Buddy

with Writers SA


Finding a good critique partner is an art unto itself. You’ve written something and your mum/dad/partner/friend loved it but they love everything you do. Receiving great feedback from non-biased community members is constructive and challenging. Giving it is a balancing act also.

Let us help you by sharing some tips and traps before your journey begins to hopefully matching up to the perfect writing buddy. After the general chit-chat, we’ll send you on a relaxed-style speed-dating whirlwind where you’ll get to share what you’re looking for with other like-minded authors in the hopes you’ll click and fall in mad writerly like.

In this fun and safe environment you'll enjoy networking with other writers and forge friendships in your local writing community.
