Critique groups

Ballarat Writers currently have two critique groups:

The first critique group meets regularly at the Bean and Barrow at Creswick; this group is currently closed to new members.

The second critique group is set to meet on the third of April at 10:30am in the side room of the Beechworth Bakery in Ballarat. Be prepared to share a little bit about your work, and why you write; all are welcome, no bookings required,


What is a critique group?

The purpose of these critique groups is to read and give feedback on each others’ work. The initial meetings involve laying down ground rules about critiquing and ensuring everyone has equal time on their work. The goal is to help all writers improve not only their own writing, but also their feedback skills. Members are to give each other time to speak without being interrupted, and critique respectfully.


If you have any questions, please contact Ballarat Writers through the contact form on the website.
