Critique Groups

New England was home to the first-ever SCBWI critique group, and still hosts the world’s longest continually-running SCBWI critique group. SCBWI Critique Groups are held, usually on a monthly basis, in communities throughout each region. Some groups meet in libraries; others, in homes. Each group is unique, shaped by the talents of the Critique Group Representative and the participants. An online list of SCBWI Critique Groups is updated frequently, and the New England Critique Groups Coordinator is available to help and advise prospective representatives on adding new critique groups to our network. New England SCBWI Critique Groups may also apply for grants to run small, local programs. Please send your questions or suggestions to our New England Critique Group Coordinators:

Rajani LaRocca, Central New England (MA)
Sally Wilkins, Northern New England (NH, ME, VT)
Cindy Rodriguez, Southern New England (CT, RI)
