Just as an FYI to writers, the Crit Partner Match site will be closing its doors on Aug. 15. Site creator Kait Nolan posted on the site:
I do hope some of you found it useful and that you DID locate a crit partner in all of this. For those of you still looking, I would point you to Absolute Write (www.absolutewrite.com), which is a large and vibrant writer’s community that has a much larger pool and a greater purpose, as well as a specialized sub forum devoted to crit partners and writing buddies. I think you might have better luck there. Best of luck. You have until August 15th to remove any material/posts or whatever from the site before I delete it. CM Clark is starting a new board Crit Partners http://critpartners.proboards.com/ if you’re looking for an alternative. –Kait
Personally, I don’t think we can have too many places to meet up with one another. My thanks go out to Kait for facilitating the site!
Update: About 5 minutes after I published this post, I received a follow-up email in my inbox. Just thought I’d share. 🙂
The fabulous CM Clark is setting up a board for Crit Partners http://critpartners.proboards.com/ as an alternative to CPM. Check it out if you’re still partnerless!
