Attention writers and readers:
If you are looking for critique partners for your manuscript, or if you are available to critique the works of others, check out this new blog, launching today:
The goal for the critXchange is for writers to post a short description of their book, similar to a query, but instead of querying agents it is a solicitation for other writers and readers to provide feedback on the manuscript.
The critXchange blog is just a meeting place...the actual exchange if manuscripts and feedback will be direct between the writers and critiquers. The submission process is similar to submitting here at the Slushpile. Could be because I started both blogs and it worked fine here. Or that I am lazy and didn't want to think up something new. Take your pick, I won't be offended.
Like The Public Query Slushpile, the success of critXchange will hinge on the participation of wonderful people like you. Feedback on the concept and ways to make it better is welcome. Wander over there when you have a chance. Right now there's only one request posted, but I know there are more manuscripts in need of critique...
