Pitch Wars is a wonderful contest that helps writers. Brenda Drake was the creator. To find out more, click here.
By entering the contest, I found a critique group that I’m still a part of today.
What is a Critique Group?
Mine is a group of writers that write in a similar genre as me, which I’ve found works best. By partnering with other writers this way, your group will be filled with people who are focused on what readers want in that particular genre.
Yes, I read in multiple genres, but I also read a ton within the one I write in. And the idea is for the group to be filled with similar writers doing the same. But even if your critique group is filled with writers of different genres, overall, you want partners who know how to construct a story (pacing, characterization, character arcs, show vs tell, etc.). These people aren’t just readers, they’re writers as well. They know what problems to look for and usually have suggestions on how to fix them.
