Programming is up!

Good news! The Winter 2016 programming is now available on the ARWA website! Take a look!

Have a wonderful holiday season and we look forward to seeing all of our members next year.

Critique Groups

Remember! If you want to get a head start on your new years writing goals, you’ll want to join the ARWA’s Challenge Critique Groups for Winter 2016.

Are you an ARWA member with a book under the bed? Are you looking for motivation to produce words on a regular basis? Would you like a supportive group to read your writing?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then ARWA’s Critique Groups might be for you! We’re starting up again in January and we would love to hear from anyone looking to be a part of our wonderful critique groups.

Types of Groups

  • Five Page Group – Members submit five pages per week for review by their group members. Members meet once a week on Skype to give verbal feedback and also send marked up pages via email.
  • Twenty Five Page Group – Members submit up to a maximum of twenty five pages per week. Members meet on Skype once a week on skype to give verbal feedback and also send marked up pages via email.
  • Book Under the Bed Group – Members submit two chapters a week, (or up to twenty five pages) of their finished novels. Members will then meet on skype after having reviewed other member’s pages and give feedback verbally, then sending feedback after the meeting. Challenge should continue until all members have made it through their books.

If you’re interested in participating, please contact and identify which group you’d like to be in (information above), what genre you write in, a brief overview of your novel and word count (if you’re applying for Book Under the Bed). Must be an ARWA member to apply! Please express your interest no later than December 31st, 2015 to ensure time to find the right groups.
