Critique Group

  • Would you buy a car without test-driving it first?
  • Would you take a medicine without ensuring it has no serious side effects?
  • Probably not. So why would you present your work to an agent or publisher without checking it out?

Our monthly critique group meetings are the ideal place to share your work and hear constructive criticism from your supportive, like-minded peers.

Our aim is simple: to improve the quality of your work.

We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the University of Winchester for two hours starting from 7.30pm.

Members email a 500-word submission to the group a week before. They read it, mark it up and bring a hard copy to the meeting to discuss.

Members of HWS gives you automatic membership to the group so there’s no additional fee. If you would like further details please contact Damon L. Wakes at damon.l.wakes[AT]gmail.com.
