The Kid Crit group has openings for new members! We are currently at four female and two male members, and we would like to have two more members in the group. Current members are working on middle grade and young adult manuscripts, but we would be open to reviewing chapter book or picture book manuscripts.


Our format is monthly swaps of up to 5,000 words each (20 pages) on the Kid Crits forum. Half the group submit during the first half of the month, and the rest submit during the second half of the month. We generally provide in-line feedback and overall comments to one another. 


Prospective members must have a thick skin and be willing and able to critique up to 80-100 pages every two weeks. If you are interested or have questions, send a PM to MarcyKate Connolly and Sakura Eries, and we'll provide more details.



The desire and ability within each of us to create is a reflection of our Creator.

Hello . . . any time you have an opening in your Kid Crit Group - please let me know.  I am a serious MG writer with one completed *tightly written) MS.

Thanks, don
