On November 1, 2014, a half dozen writers attended our first meeting at a little cafe near Penn Station, struggling to speak over the elevator music and fighting for table space among the commuters. The New York City Writers Critique Group was born.

Since then, we have grown to become a thriving and diverse community of writers with varying backgrounds and degrees of experience. We welcome all writers, whether you are brand new to the craft or adding to your list of publishing credits. All we ask is that you come with respect, an open mind, and energy to help your fellow writers improve.

We meet twice each month, once in a formal setting to discuss the craft and critique each others’ work, and once as a social gathering, for drinks and informal conversation. For a full list of upcoming meetings (and to be notified of our upcoming schedule) please find us on Meetup.

For a long and detailed explanation of how our meetings work, including how to submit your work, please read How We Work.
