We write and critique all types of writing - children's, poems, short stories, articles, novels etc.
I now belong to a second critique group! It is only composed of children's writers.
It is an on line critique group and I am anxious to get started with the fun. . . and work!
I belong to the Fighting Bookworms of CBI Clubhouse. They put out a downloadable newsletter every month and have a great website. They have expert guides to help you with every type of children's writing. They have a Step by Step Writing Course for members, they have lots of helpful articles and videos, free e-books and forums.
And, they now have private critique groups you can join. They will place you in a critique group depending on your experience and what type of children's manuscripts that you write.
I just got placed in one and I am looking forward to starting the process.
If you are interested in checking them out, you can click onto the link to their site from my side bar. There are a lot of things you can do and look at on their site without being a member. But members get to do a lot more.
As writers we need to associate with other writers. They are the only ones who understand what it is like. Writing and critique groups are great. I think we all need them no matter how advanced of a writer you may happen to be.
I am not advanced by no means. When I joined my writing group around five years ago, I didn't know a thing about writing. I learned quickly after I started going to the meetings. I wish I had started writing sooner, but we are never too old to learn.

Do you have another word you can add?
