This group is a whole fucking lot tad inactive at the moment. I am looking to change that, as this group could really help people. You don't need to be a complete newbie beginner to be in this group. You can join this group to simply sharpen skills you already have, or try critiquing as a way of perhaps seeing things that you don't normally spot in your own writing but now you do.

Don't be afraid to participate. Nobody will laugh at you - and if they do they will be sorted out. So participate in the challenges. Try things you haven't. Give it a go. You never know what talents might emerge.

One-on-one sessions are available with an admin. Please don't note the admin but note MagicalJoey and you will be assigned an admin depending on their skills and availability etc.

Encourage your friends to join. Encourage people who critique your work to join.

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

A Knight so brave
There was a night so true and bold
Who’s hart was filled with purest gold.
She rescued damsels in destress
Upon a hoarse wereing a dress.
Won day he saw a maiden fare
With blewest eyes and flowing hare.
His heart jumped out form within his chest
When his eyes beheld her ample breast.
His cheeks blushed deepest crimson red
As naughty thorts run through his head.
But she just laughed and flicked her hair
While he sat and struggled deeply with the thoughts he bore.

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

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  Hobbyist 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?
MagicalJoey Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012   Writer
Most certainly. Once you have done so, just send me a note titled 'Poetry Critiquing' and I will get you started. :)
EwaGladka Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
