Writing Critique Groups

LAwritersgroup.com runs writing groups throughout the Los Angeles area. Our groups meet once a week for a pre-determined number of weeks weeks and are run by qualified group leaders who are skilled in cross-genre feedback and running critique groups. Open to all writers of all genres, regardless of skill level. In addition to providing a safe and supportive environment to get feedback on your writing project, we do several in-group improvisational creative writing exercises that not only help open you up creatively and create new stories or poetry, they help elevate your writing.

Writers who attend our writing critique groups have brought in many different kinds of projects:

  • Fiction
  • Novels
  • Novellas
  • Essays
  • Short Stories
  • Memoir
  • Screenplays
  • Genre ficion such as LGBT, Steampunk, and Science Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Creative web-based projects

Over the years we’ve offered several kinds of groups, our staple and beloved 8-Week Writers Groups (cross-genre) which we always offer, as well as a Group for Advanced Writers, One-Day Intensive Writing Seminars, a Screenwriting Specific Group, and Groups specifically for poets.

All our groups aim toward getting words on the page and providing a safe place for writers to exchange feedback on works in progress.
