The playwright John Osborne once said “Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost what it feels about dogs.” And yet even Malcolm X remarked, “If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.” In BoulderWrites we agree with both statements. But we also know that we’re not critics. We don’t criticize, we critique, and in our collectively humble opinion we do a damn fine job. So if you’re ambitious for commercial success or simply aspire to improve writing that’s already accomplished, we encourage you to check out this limited time opportunity. ‘Cause we’re looking for just a few writers to fill out our group. So if you can commit to consistently write and critique, week in and week out, get in touch. No dilettantes, please.

If you would like to join our group, you must be committed to:

  • Bringing 10-20 pages of work every other week.
  • Critiquing others work every week.
  • Meeting every Monday, in the evening.

When you come to audition in our group, you will be asked to:

  • Provide a sample of your best work
  • Provide a synopsis of your current work
  • Critique a sample piece of writing
  • Attend at least two meetings

If this sounds like you, please don’t hesitate to email at
