Find a Writing Buddy (Latest Edition!)

Need a writing buddy? A critique partner? A beta reader? Here’s your stop!

Writers need feedback. And friends! 🙂 But sometimes it can be difficult to find someone who is willing to read your work and who is also a good fit for you and your writing.

There are many different forums and groups online designed to help writers link up with each other for beta reading and helpful feedback. You can find some of those groups listed in this post. You can also reach out right here in the Wordplayer community.

Once or twice a year, I post a “writing buddy linkup,” which opens the comments to anyone looking for a critique partner or accountability partner. It is always massively popular, and I have heard from a number of writers who have had success in finding writing partners. I’ve even heard from people who connected in the first link-up I hosted years ago who have become lifelong friends!

If you want to join the fun, keep reading.
