This week, we welcome Brooke McIntyre, the founder of InkedVoices, a platform for writing groups and an online space for writers. In our virtual world, she’s got the answers for writers seeking to connect, critique and collaborate online.

She joined the Social to talk about finding your own critique group, getting feedback on your work and providing feedback on other writers’ work. This is a super-timely topic, and you should definitely check it out.


Laura also checks in with publishing links, and we celebrate the successes of some Children’s Book Insider subscribers.
