This group is still a tad silent, but I don't know if that means inactive. I am hoping that when I post these challenge pieces you look at them and maybe try them out. I also hope that if you get stuck or have a question that you will ask me (MagicalJoey )

Don't be afraid to participate. Try things you haven't. Give it a go. You never know what talents might emerge.

We only have two admins. If you would like to be an admin and help teach people note MagicalJoey and we can see where things stand. This is just a case of passing along any skills or strengths you may have in critiquing pieces. So whether you are only 'good' at one thing or have many skills consider joining the team to teach whomever wishes to learn.

Encourage your friends to join. Encourage people who critique your work to join.
ONLY ONE RULE

:heart: This is a LITERATURE critique group. :heart:

Fella made it onto Whose Line Is It Anyway as the special guest for that week. He was ecstatic to meet his idols in the improv. comedy world – Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie and Wayne Brady. With Aisha Tyler calling the shots it was finally time for Fella’s favourite game...Party Quirks. He loved watching this game at home, and had even tried it a few times with his friends. Only it was never the same, always so easy to guess.
Ryan, Colin and Wayne were each given a card with a secret identity or quirk they had never seen before. Fella was playing the party host. When Aisha rang them in, the other three would enter as the guests embodied with these traits or quirks; Fella merely had to guess who or what they were...simple, right?
“Got the chips, dip...root beer.” Fella started the scene. Looking at his watch he mumbled “I said seven thirty...” and with that Aisha rang in Colin who immediately grabbed Fella’s butt.

When first my eyes were laid upon you I
Thought this a tactless joke, a jibe, a jest.
Some ‘happy pills’ to bring my mood up high
And stimulate emotion in my chest.
My second thought was that my woes were gone
For good, I now held magic in my hand
To bring about a new and glorious sun
Within my life. But cursed was the man
Who manufactured such accursed pills,
They did naught but turn my stomach around
And upon itself. I did naught but mill
About, until a new dosage was found
To work, and since then I’ve been glad that these
Pills can help me with my mental disease.


Please do make an effort to bring people in. This group could really help people if you, and they, give it a chance.

I did a search for a 'Random Group', and this page came up.

Well, we are random :)
Basically we try to help people become comfortable with critiquing works of literature. Whether it's through the group's challenges or through one-on-one.
Glad you found us :)

I'm still hesitating to call myself a poet, or barely even an artist - but apart from these confidence issues, I love to be able to help fellow writers and give constructive and helpful comments and tips. I think this group can be very interesting, I am still wondering how the teaching works tho, I'm thinking about giving it a try. May I ?

You most certainly may. Depending on what you want to learn to critique I take you through some grammar and spelling exercises, and then we go into specific things relating to prose or poetry.

What you need to do now is note me, with a note titled Lit Training, telling me which type of lit you would like to learn to critique. Then we can get started.

I'd like to learn how to critique poetry - I also hope that it may help me in improving my own writing abilities. Can I join this group?
