This group is sadly 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.

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

Your Current Challenge Pieces:

I Am Your GodI Am Your God
I came into this world through an uncomfortable vessel of choice, as it normally was comfortable: the uterus, the womb, the cervix. I came to be adored, worshipped and loved, but what did they do? What did the vessels and their fellow vessel friends do? They fawned.
They fawned over me as if I was some animal. Always ‘cootchi coo’ing’ or counting my toes and fingers as if they thought I might have been born strange. Then they would all gather around my vessels and congratulate them on a happy, healthy, baby with all ten toes and ten fingers and all working genitalia as far as they could assume. I had to institute some rules to worship, rules I was prepared to scream for if accomplishment met difficulty.
Rule One: I will be dry and clean at all times. It only took the vessels me screaming for two straight hours with a damp diaper for them to click; mainly because the screaming stopped when my butt was dry. So they learned from

My soul connected with your heartbeat
And broke when that heartbeat stopped.
My heart shattered when yours went silent
And now I live a half life,
A cursed existence.
When your heart went silent mine went silent
And my life now is a half life.
My heart broke when your heartbeat stopped;
Now I live a cursed existence
As this soul of mine connected with your heartbeat.
My soul was broken when your heartbeat stopped,
And now I live a cursed life; a cursed existence.
I live a life of halves; a half life.
I connected with your soul and heartbeat,
But my heart shattered when your heartbeat went silent.
My life now is a half life,
For my soul connected with you; with your heartbeat.
All I have now is a cursed existence,
For my heart was shattered when your heart went silent;
It broke when your heartbeat stopped.
I live a cursed existence,
My heart shattered by your heart so silent;
My soul once connected to your heartbeat.
My soul broke when your heartb

I did a search for a 'Random Group', and this page came up.
MagicalJoey Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2014   Writer
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 :)

Is this group still active? Because if it's I would want to learn from you.
MagicalJoey Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013   Writer
It is yes, start off by trying the challenge pieces and then we will take it from there :)

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 ?
MagicalJoey Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012   Writer
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.
Hanachi-Shitsukki Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Well, I'm in then! Count me as a member :3
MagicalJoey Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012   Writer
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.
MagicalJoey Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012   Writer
Will do :)
EwaGladka Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012   Writer
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?
