The Red Ink Tank Podcast–COMING SOON!

I meet regularly with my two critique partners Heather Rebel and Kaylyn Witt. We are the type of crit partners who use red ink, show no mercy, and draw sometimes inappropriate pictures on each other’s pages. In the midst of all this, we learn and teach each other how to write well. We spot typos, we call each other out on view point intrusions or passive voice, and we make each other work hard to impress us. If you need to cut words or a scene isn’t moving the plot forward, we’re gonna tell you.


For those writers who try to struggle through this journey on your own, stop that immediately. I suggest a critique group or at least one critique partner who is going to give you honest, sometimes brutal advice about your writing. Along those lines, my critique partners and I have decided to start a podcast called The Red Ink Tank. We’ll be discussing what we could have improved upon in our own writing during critique sessions, and we’ll be giving out writerly advice in general.

What I want to know is: What do YOU want to know? We want to discuss things you’re interested in hearing about. Feel free to leave your comments below, even if anonymous, and we’ll try to answer them on the podcast, which should be up and running by the end of the month of February. Help us help you! 🙂

    This sounds like a great idea and I would love it if you told us a little about how you and your CPs found each other. Also, it would be good to hear about how your critiquing process. Do you meet up in person and critique in front of each other? Do you really just use “red ink” without sandwiching critiques? If a CP goes to far, how do you let your partners know that they crossed a line while maintaining your relationship?
