I write Fiction – precisely short story. I also write literary nonfiction piece.
I am looking for critique partner I can work with – get feedback and opinion on my piece, exchange ideas. I will be grateful when I’m contacted.
Hello–New to this site. Haven’t figured out how to work it yet, or it might not be working that well right now. Cannot reply to attractive posts, which is disappointing–e.g., loripuma’s. I’m looking for a CP. My WIP include a Memoir (which is similar to what loripuma described–about an intense truth teller (& question asker) in a family where love is not asking too many questions. I also write literary fiction and personal essays. While I read mostly literary fiction, women’s fiction, YA, memoir, and some SF, speculative fiction, and fantasy, I generally don’t like horror, ghost stories, religious themes, porn, or work with more than minimal violence, and that needs to be essential to the plot, and true for the characters and their relationships. I’m willing to treat my CP’s work as if it were my own, to offer the honest, constructive take of an intelligent, goodhearted reader. I’m looking for a CP who’s honest, reliable, and true.
What kinds of short stories or topics do you write about? I am a terrific editor and writing and composition English language teacher. I am looking for someone to critique my short stories and a book. Because what I write is near and dear, it is hard to be objective as far as the reader’s interest may be concerned. My short stores are based on memories but come with a hopeful inspirational message to the reader, sort of “Do this and not that.” My book is a human interest success story revolving around my son I adopted in Thailand. By the time he was four, I was convinced he was intellectually slow. Boy, was I wrong! There is a little in it about his color being raised primarily in an American society.
