As my entry for this week's State the Obvious Contest, I'll open with the following: talented, hardworking YA writers are wanted and needed in this world. They're also wanted and needed in a critique group: my critique group. I don't care what genre you write in YA, just as long as you understand how those of us who are fixated at the adolescent level operate and how our stories operate. If you are ready to love us for how we are, we are ready to love you back. I'm trying to get a YA focused critique group started in the Union County NJ area, preferably near Cranford. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The group would need to meet on Saturday, Sunday or an evening. Serious writers with a strong interest in helping others grow and develop are encouraged to inquire.
