View Full Version : Writting buddy for swap and crit

08-29-2011, 09:38 PM
Hi everybody,

I'm looking for someone I can trade short stories with for basic crits and feedback. I write mostly short fiction, some flash fiction, trying to keep everything under 3,000 words. A lot of it is mainstream/literary, but I write some magic realism stuff too. I've just started subbing my work out to lit mags and journals, so either someone who is already familiar with that world or someone who is just starting out like I am would be great.

I have a really hard time getting critical feedback on my work from people in my life and I would love someone who could give harsh critiques. I am an editor for my college paper and I'm pretty liberal with the red pen, so if you don't have a thick skin I'm probably not for you.

I'm also writing frequently these days, with two or three stories a week, so someone who wants to swap on a regular basis would be great.
