First Page Critique Peer Workshop [Novel Boot Camp]

NBClogoWelcome to the peer critiques. Below you will find a list of novel openings available for peer critique. If you submitted your opening, please critique at least five other submissions. If you didn’t submit your opening, you are still welcome to help out your fellow writers by leaving critiques.

While honesty is a good thing, let’s try to keep the critiques constructive and polite. Thanks!

The submissions are currently anonymous. Feel free to reveal yourself as the author of your opening if you wish or you can remain anonymous. It is your choice.

Thanks to everyone who submitted and everyone who made the first half of Novel Boot Camp so fun and successful!

For the next workshop I’ll be doing query critiques, so get those queries ready! I’ll start accepting them on Monday. First come, first served.
