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.

:new: If you are participating in the challenges without actually commenting on them (which I hope some of you are) and you get stuck or want to have your work checked please don't hesitate to note MagicalJoey who will do her best to check them for you.

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.

:new: As of today 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.

:new: If you have prose (specifically) or poetry that you want critiqued please don't hesitate to submit to GrammarNaziCritiques and a critic will be with you as soon as possible. Please do read the rules, in the journal on our profile page, before submitting just to help you along.

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

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

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
Thank you :)
