Champagne at the Ready, Writing Pens Steady, Go! | The Beta Launch is Here
Excuse me while I celebrate a little over here.

This morning at 3.30am PST we opened our doors to you, our very first Ladies Who Critique members. After weeks of working on the site and seeing it all come together I feel simultaneously relieved, and silently overwhelmed. I have a clear idea of what I wish the site to be, and know that it will take several baby steps to get there. But I am SO happy to have you along for the ride!
I hope that you are able to take a look around the site and learn more about critiquing, meet some potential critique partners, and get involved. We will be continuously working on improving the site and welcome your suggestions on how to do so. There are also a number of other ways you can participate:
– Enter our monthly contest! One member will win a 25 page critique. The entry process is super fun too – check it out here.
– Become a Ladies Who Critique ambassador! Help spread the word, talk to members and shape the direction of the site.
– Write a guest post or short article about your writing or critiquing experience and we’ll try to feature you on the blog/
Finally, I wanted to re-iterate why I started Ladies Who Critique in the first place. If you have any experience with a good writing or critique group I don’t need to tell you how amazing the support of a positive critique partner or group can be. Not to mention how much your writing will improve. If you are yet to share your writing with anyone, I truly believe that having a supportive critique partner will be the single best thing you can do to take your writing to the next level and I hope that all writers will get a chance to experience the magic.
This is why I wanted to create the site, and it’s the philosophy behind our logo and branding: Take Your Writing to the Next Level.
Thanks once again for your support!
Laura Pepper Wu, Founder.
