Nice breakdown of writer groups. I’d include level of experience as a parsing factor for determining if a group is a good fit. I’ve written about writing syndicates over at conked.io and the novel I’m serialising there is about a heart transplant survivor who runs a writers syndicate that’s been featured in the NY Times. My group Wishlist = small, no more than 6, fiction preferably crime thriller and/or psychological thriller novel not short story focused, pro level writers with passion, not weekend warriors And a critique focus not timed writing or prompt generating. No age or gender specificity nor geographic location or academic qualification - are you out there?
