    HI there, this is the first critique of yours that I’ve read and I’ve definately found it to be helpful. I am currently practicing writing short fiction, though I don’t know if I would call them short stories because they’re just scraps. Reading a critique like yours helps me to understand how to apply techniques that I’ve become familiar with in longer or poetic writing to condense and intensify their power. Thanks 🙂

    Here’s a short story critique I did earlier. 🙂

    Your Red pen session caused my heart to palpitate. 🙂 which means I am seriously thinking about letting you apply your red pen to the first chapter of my NaNo book from last year, after I finished sprucing it up.

    I read your suggestions about Graham’s work and it’s fantastic.

    Thank you very much, Pat. I’m delighted you thought it fantastic and scary! Yes, feel free to send anything over. I have a 3,000-word limit on here because I do into so much detail but if you’l like others to comment (who’d probably be more gentle than me) you’d be welcome to send up to 5,000 words for the writing group – see


We'd love you to leave a comment, thank you!
