I would love to open a discussion on different styles, formats and experiences from in person critique groups. I founded one about a year ago and I want to make sure the members get the most benefit from their time and effort. I use an excellent set of guidelines already (found it here on AW) but I'd love to hear how other groups handle different issues. Such as:
Genre or Subject mater limitation. Is your group open to all genres and subject matter? If so what if a member would rather not critique on a certain subject - how do you ensure that the give and receive remains fair and equal?

Does size matter? Do you have a time limit per critique? Do you have a standard check list that everyone follows or are the critiques specific as per the members' skills?

Feel free to suggest any other topics.
Thanks!
Does your group have membership requirements that ensure a productive and beneficial critique?
