    I have searched through this site for a few days and I don't see a lot of people out there writing Creative Non-Fiction. I may be looking in the wrong places- or maybe * GASP* no one has the same interest as me! At this moment I'd like to find critique partner(s) who are specifically interested in Memoir or Humor. Anyone?!
