The Prose Shop is an online critique forum for writers of picture books and magazine stories in prose for children up to 12 years of age. It’s an established online critique group (created in 2005) and has a mix of both published and unpublished writers. The Shop’s goal is to help members improve their techniques, become more confident and capable writers, discuss and share information, and become traditionally published.
The Prose Shop is organized via a message board forum. There are a few rules pertinent to the group:
First, members critique at least one or two stories for each manuscript they post.
Second, members must critique at least one story every 30 days, whether or not they post a story.
