I was on this nifty website called Twitter tonight. And what do you know, a tweet came up. *Seriously, what are the odds?*
It was a link to a new website advertising a space for authors to find helpful critiques. Conveniently, it came at a time I was at a loss as to how to find a good crit partner.
Then of course, as I was about to sign up, the name caught my attention more closely.
“Ladies Who Critique”
Ladies? As in… not men?
After some desperate searching, I finally found the FAQ page and noticed that men were in fact also welcomed, contrary to impressions.
So, now that I’ve apparently joined some of the first members of this site, I’m wondering if I’m the only guy around?
Either way, it’s nice to meet everyone and I look forward to getting to know you all better. 😉

Welcome to LWC! I’m glad to know the website doesn’t discriminate, in spite of the title (I was a little concerned about that, I must confess—perhaps they’ll consider renaming it when it gets out of beta?).
As for your question, I’ve no idea if there are any other guys hanging around. I think I’ve only interacted with other women up until this point, but that isn’t to say they don’t exist.
At any rate, we’ll see you around the forums! 🙂August 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm #4818
Hi Matt, Welcome!
You’ve read the FAQ’s so you know our reasoning behind the site’s name. We love that you are here – have a great time!

No, there is another guy. I think he’s in the SF/Fantasy group, though. I’m also hoping my husband will join this site, but I doubt he will.August 20, 2011 at 6:13 pm #4821
Hi Matt, welcome!
No I saw Eric on the first sentences forum yesterday
I’m also trying to get my friend Sean on here.August 20, 2011 at 9:51 pm #4822
Welcome Matt! It’s good to see a male around here. Maybe you can help encourage more to join.August 21, 2011 at 8:09 am #4823
I hope you start a trend of men joining this group 😛 You seem out-numbered here, haha.August 21, 2011 at 3:07 pm #4824
The hubby is NOT joining the site, because he’s just not ready for people to see his WIP (which he hasn’t even touched in forever). I finally found this out after he gave me excuses like “I feel like I would have to have something completed” etc, which I easily rebutted. Guess he’s not interested. Oh well no surprise there. Gives the chance to talk about him lol.August 21, 2011 at 11:08 pm #4825
Hi Matt! I really hope more guys follow you here cause, imho, dudes give some of the most solid feedback 🙂August 22, 2011 at 3:16 am #4826

Welcome, Matt 😀 I saw someone named Joseph post on the Science Fiction and Fantasy the other day. Welcome to LWC and sorry for not welcome you earlier, lol. I don’t go on the YA forum much 😛August 24, 2011 at 10:57 pm #4829
