This group is 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. 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.

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.

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:

Prose Challenge Piece 4 for Learn2Crit-LitSuper was petty good, even if it was the 2nd time today Twitchy was halving tuna.  It was her favarite meal; so it didnt matter.  Some people food was even butter, but that wasa rare treat.  Licking her paws and washing her face. She walked in to the living room.
That was when Twitchy got the sock of her life.  Up above the Box with the Bars was a nother cat!  Looking rite back at her!  What was sum other cat doing in side the house?!  And hoe did she get way up their on the wall?
Twichy looked write into the intruders’ eyes; and she looked write back.  This cat was n’t backing down 1-bit.  Twitchy hisssed, but the other cat din’t move an itch in fact it hissed at the exact same time as Twitchy.  This was bad, all the humans was down stairs, they did know about this cat at all.  The right full owner of the house couldn’t’ go get them; or it wood look like she was running a way.  She have to take c

Poetry Challenge Piece 3 for Learn2Crit-LitMusic
Can you hear the music play
Can you hear the violins sing
Can you hear as the drums pound
And the delightful sounds begin
What about the dancing flute
Or the tiny piccolo
Can you hear as they join in
Producing music high and low
Pages rustle as they’re turned
The conductor turns and takes his bow
It’s time to start the music folks
It’s time to start the music now

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 :)

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?
