FORT WORTH, March 19, 2012 — Calling all writers: The Greater Fort Worth Writers Critique Group is pleased to announce it is sponsoring a critique contest.

We are writers from all walks of life and various experiences in the field of writing. Our group consists of published authors as well as beginning writers and everyone in between.

We are offering you the chance to have up to fifteen pages of your work critiqued by our writers absolutely free.

Don’t wait; Shakespeare wasn’t published until after he died.


If you’ve never been in a critique group or had your work looked at, this is a great opportunity to get feedback and ideas on how to improve your writing skills. We are enthusiastic, friendly and enjoy helping people to reach their full potential in this field. For those of you who have ever had a critique experience that made you feel bad about your pieces this is a great opportunity to see a supportive group at work.

We will accept manuscripts of all genres except erotic romance or erotica. We do not accept manuscripts containing scenes with necrophilia, pedophilia, or rape as a sport.

To enter:;go to our blog at for rules, post a comment on any of our group entries and/or become a follower of any of our blogs. We will enter your name in the drawing each time you comment on one of our blogs or “follow” them. Tweet something about our monthly critiques and get another entry in the drawing. The deadline for submissions will be April 5.

The winner will be picked from a random drawing of all entries and will be announced on April 15th on our blog. A written critique will be emailed to the winner by April 30th.
