Is it too late to join this critique group? The story I'm working on now is starting out as a chapter book and several of my unpublished p.b.s have been recommended by editors to be lengthened into chapter books. I flying blind and could use some help. Thanks. BTW, my email address is sarahmaury71@bgmail.com

Hello, all--

I'm still interested in forming a group of 4-6 writers of MG (or maybe YA) realistic fiction.

I have two works in progress--one with  political and ethnic relations themes set in Romania during the 1970's, and another with an environmental theme set in the Finger Lakes of New York State.

I have previously published picture books, but not novels.

Is there anyone still looking for a chapter book critique group that did not get picked up from this post.  Looking for 2-3 people to start a group. There is already 2 of us.  Thanks

Signed up for SCBWI this morning and found this thread. I'm interested in joining a critique group, so I'd like to throw my hat in the ring. Still open for new group members?

I too am new to SCBWI and am interested in joining a Critique group.  I have written and illustrated  a chapter book (perhaps two, depending on if it is divided).  My book takes place outside of the US, but it is not what I would consider "realistic fiction."  My email is jessica@dsandblaw.com

Hi, I would be interested in joining this group or possible starting a new one as it seems like this one isn't taking new members. My email is heatherkocubinski@gmail.com

A reminder: The original group may be full, but those of you further down the thread can still connect with each other.

How do I contact you?

Lorraine and Janice, will you write your email so we can start an email thread?
Charles--I think MG is different than chapter book writing. I bet you can find a more specific group.

Hi everyone! I am definitely looking for a chapter book critique group but just came upon this thread today. Are there any groups with space for one more? Or is there anyone else in need of a group that we can start? My email address is jennifer.vose8@gmail.com

Hi! Just now seeing this but since I just started working on a chapter book, I could really use some help with critiques! This is my first try at attempting to write a chapter book (I'm more familiar with YA) so I could use some advice! My email is cjcure@yahoo.com. Thanks! I'd love to be in a critique group to help me learn!

Hello  I would like to join a chapter book critique group as well, ideally a UK based one as my book is quite place specific. Very new to this and these Boards particularly but my email is liffy22@hotmail.com.

Hi All,

I’d love to join a chapter book critique group! I am writing one- and would love other eyes on it. And of course to read what others are working on.

Thanks so much!

Hi, I am new. I understand one group is already full. I would like to join any subsequent groups? I have just completed my first manifest which is book 1 in a series. I have a few people reading through for me but mostly friends and family and would really like the input from fellow authors. I would also love to read through other manuscripts in the same field to help other authors and connect..
