About Us

The intent of the Five Rivers Writers’ Group is to provide members online and face-to-face peer review and discussion of concepts, works in progress, projects, and writings. Additionally, the members provide each other support toward mutual development of writing skills and encourage the publishing of qualified work.

Member writers may submit poetry or prose to the group through the web site. Other members download the submissions. They review and critique them and provide the submitting writer a written page-by-page critique, including an overall evaluation summary of the work.  At a regularly scheduled monthly meeting, the edited work may be read in part or completely by the author. Reviewing members may support their critiques and the author may question the reviewers concerning their critiques, but no formal critiques are made at the meeting.
