Group Description

YACrits- We are a small group of writers for Young Adult and Upper Middle Grade fiction(ages 14-18), serious about improving our craft and publishing our work. Erotica, occult horror, excessive profanity, and graphic violence is not acceptable. We are not interested in lower middle grade or chapter books.

Writer Level: Intermediate/Advanced - Writers must have had at least one piece accepted for publication in print. Previous experience with critique groups preferred.

We currently don't have any openings. If you you'd like to be considered, or added to the waiting list, send your email to one of the addresses below.

For information email:
Emily - esdeibel@gmail.com
Erin - erinfanning@yahoo.com

We will ask you to answer a few questions and submit a brief writing sample. The critique group members vote whether to admit each new member. A short trial period will then be assigned to see if the newest member is a good fit for the group and can keep up with crits. When spaces are available, preference will be given to current members of SCBWI Michigan.

Group requirements:
Limit of 4 members.
Each member may post one ms (up to 5,000 words) for critique per month on scheduled date.
Each member is required to critique every posted ms within one week of posted date. One ms will be scheduled each week.
Members are expected to give comprehensive critiques per guidelines.
No flaming allowed.
