Stop Writing Alone is a weekly show for writers looking for a writing community. In each episode listeners will learn where and how they can find, or create, their own writing community while joining one such community with Stop Writing Alone. The show will provide inspiration, writing activities, critique, and lessons from “distant teachers” in the writing world via their writings, online presence, and interviews. The show is written and hosted by Nicole Rivera, co-organizer of a local writing group, writer, and Pitch Wars 2016 mentee.

Episode Description

As the Stop Writing Alone Critique Crew has begun to experiment with a new way to critique our writing, I have discovered a tool in “writing notes” that I wanted to share with the whole community. “Writing Notes” are meant to be shared with readers of your work to help focus their feedback on what you actually need to help your WIP become exactly what you’ve dreamed, but I have also found that these notes are helping me stay focused as well. This week I shared my process in writing my writing notes and challenge you to take the time to write them for your own WIP.
