Vermont Critique Groups

VT – Brattleboro

Do you live in Southern VT or Southern NH and wonder where all the children's writers are? We are an MG/PIX Book group that meets on Thursday's. We welcome you and your work. We provide critique and support and share information as we work towards publication. Critiques are not required. Writers can choose critique partners or bring something to the whole group. Writing prompts may pop up from time-to-time. Please contact Mara Berkley at for details. Put nescbwi in the subject! Newbies be not afraid. Look forward to hearing from you!

I’m forming a critique group for picture book writers. I am looking for authors/writers of all levels who are willing to give and receive good feedback on their manuscripts. I plan to meet in-person in the Burlington area once a month. For more information, please email Carrie Marr at
