About the Critique Partner category

This category is for writers seeking a critique partner, which is defined as a fellow writer or author who is asked to provide at least one round of critique on one project. This can be a short-term or long-term relationship, as decided by the writers engaging with one another.

Remember, Crit Collective is a place to meet your critique partner, but we do not regulate the relationship. For more information, please check out our about post and FAQ.

As a general rule of thumb, for a successful critique partner post, please include:

  • Name or pen name
  • Audience or category of your writing (literary fiction, young adult, etc.)
  • Genre of your writing (fantasy, historical, etc.), if applicable
  • What you would like your partner to do (read a whole manuscript, read the first ten pages, exchange writing prompts, etc.)
  • What you are willing to do for your partner (remember—you have to give to receive critique, so what are you available to do for a potential partner)
  • How quickly you would ideally like to work with your partner, and any time parameters you would like to put on the relationship
  • Your location, if applicable
  • A short description of your project (500 words is a good starting point) or excerpt of your writing.

Hi, my name is Mavzuna, but I decided to go by a pen name Mira. I am a homeschooling mother of 8 kids. I believe I have plenty of good material for a number of picture books. All stories are based on my childrens’ childhood stories or events. I would love to have a critic partner with experience in writing and publishing picture books. To give me a feedback on the writing style, word choices, etc. In return, I would be happy to do same, but not as a professional writer, which I am not. I am an avid reader, I grew up on Great Russian Literature and I believe I developed a taste for good books.
Currently, I live in Pinedale, Wyoming with my husband and kids. Thank you!
