Hey guys.
« on: March 09, 2013, 04:02:12 pm »
I'm Chris, 24, and a budding Fantasy writer. Do members share work with each other to be critiqued? That would be amazing and I would love to join in.

Cheers.

Hey Chris, welcome to the discussion boards. I believe there are some members on here who critique each others work. Hopefully they'll pop up and say hi!

Hi Chris, and welcome.

While you may well find what you want via this forum, an additional suggestion for you, if you are looking for a wide-ranging writing crit group. The best (and genre-oriented) one I have come across is Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror.
http://sff.onlinewritingworkshop.com/index.shtml

It costs just under US$50 per year so is a commitment, but you can try it out for a month for free. I have gained a lot from it both around short stories and, currently, while writing my first novel. Alumni include Aliette de Bodard, Ian Tregillis, Ruth Nestvold and Charles Coleman Finlay (who is now a "resident editor").

Good luck,
Phillip
