The Critique Group

The critique group is the bedrock of Evanston Writers Workshop. It meets the first and third Wednesday of the month at Coldwell Banker in Evanston. Writers share their work with the group for critique with the goal of learning from the other writers. This group is an eclectic mix of writers, ranging from beginners to long time professionals, and reflect all ages, genders and backgrounds.

We have members who publish literary fiction, creative non-fiction, children's literature, romance, hard-boiled crime, memoir, travel, poetry, humor and assorted forms of the unclassifiable.

Because we are fearless and a little nuts, we open our minds to anyone and any thing. We'll bend and stretch ourselves like soft licorice to dig your stuff. Most importantly, we'll help you get it published.

There is no censorship at the Evanston Writers Workshop.

For these reasons, the critique group is limited to those eighteen (18) years of age or older.
