For any writers on Google+ interested in joining a critique group, we’re still looking for members. We are restricting content to speculative fiction, and I personally prefer read short stories but we’ll accept any length work (with submissions kept to ~ 5,000 words per meeting).
We had our first session today and it went well, even though one member was unable to join us due to inclement weather and lost power. The hangout interface is intuitive and easy to use, and it’s nice to be able to talk over the critiques instead of trying to convey your thoughts over e-mail/online forums/etc.
We’ll be planning our next session for the first week in January, and then every three weeks afterwards.
Comment here if you’re interested in joining and I’ll be in touch.
