    Hooray for Beta readers! One of the questions I’ve heard at every SCBWI event I’ve been to is "How do you form a critique group?" Mine happened in a hodgepodge of ways, but they were all do-able for anyone: meeting people in a writing class, posting a notice on the bulletin board at the library, meeting people at SCBWI, meeting people through other writer friends. We had some folks who didn’t fit, and naturally moved on, but once we had a solid group, it worked. It took time, but it was worth it.
