Speculative Fiction Writers is an online critique group associated with Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, which is based in Colorado and serves writers across North America. The group is always interested in the bleeding edge of technology so we meet and critique online with Zoom every Tuesday from 6:00 MT to 9:00 MT.
Our members write and publish many of the speculative fiction sub-genres including science fiction, fantasy, horror, dystopian, weird west, fairy tales and more. Our writers are at all skill levels, and we are always open to new members who write speculative fiction.
We critique each other’s works with the goal of helping to create excellent speculative fiction stories readers will love. Members critique an average of 7000-9000 words of our peers’ submissions a week. In return, writers receive 3-5 critiques from those also attending a session. We upload pages by 12:00 P.M. MT on Sunday and complete the critiques prior to meeting on Zoom video chat on Tuesday evening from 6:00 P.M. MT to 9:00 P.M. MT.
Our sessions start with writerly discussion about craft, publishing and marketing. We then share comments from 6:30 PM MT until we are finished, time dependent on the number of attendees.
You should audit one of our online session before deciding to join our critique group to determine if our format works for you. Critiquing other’s works is not required during your first session. If you’re interested in becoming a member the next step is to pick a date to audit. If you have a general question please use our Contact us page.
