Scribes’ Tribe Critique Group in Wentzville, MO

Me and my friend, Amy Harke-Moore, have a great little critique group called The Scribes’ Tribe. Our group meets every week for two hours in Wentzville, MO. We write and critique almost everything! From short stories to essays to book chapters to poems to drabbles (thanks, Laura, for teaching us about drabbles!!) to cover letters to the dreaded synopsis.

Our members have been published in books, magazines, anthologies, and literary journals as well as won numerous writing awards, and we’re always learning–from each other, from attending conferences, from reading. We like to keep the group small and intimate, but occasionally we have openings.

  1. Are you looking for a friendly but serious critique group?
  2. Are you ready to take your writing to the next level?
  3. Do you think you would benefit from feedback on your writing?

The Scribes’ Tribe might be the group for you.

Areas we serve include St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County, Warren County–all depends on how far you want to drive. 🙂 I drive an hour to critique each week. Why? Well, because I’m committed (some would say I should be committed) to constantly improving my writing. The only way to do that is to get feedback. Some towns that are within an hour’s drive or less include Warrenton, Wentzville, Troy, Old Monroe, St. Peters, St. Charles, Chesterfield, Winfield, Lake St. Louis, Maryland Heights, Ballwin, Moscow Mills, Wright City, Hawk Point, Bridgeton, and Wildwood.

As of May 2016–We do not have openings, but feel free to contact us if you’re interested.

    I am a member of Saturdays Writers in St.Peters. However I’m looking for a group of writers in Wentzville, as this is closer to O’Fallon where I live. My book,”Caught in a Tangled Loop,’ is published on amazon. Also I write short stories and free verse. My short story and poems were published in Unity Magazine and Saturday Writers Anthology.
    Thanks, Audrey Clare

    Just discovered your writings. Can’t wait to catch up with all your books. I’m a horse lover as well and had to leave my paint behind in Oklahoma when I moved to Kansas last month. Can’t wait to get her here and to read more of your books.

      Hello Cindy, THANK YOU for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I hope you are reunited with your paint very soon! I know you are missing her. I sure don’t know what I’d do without my horse nearby. You and I are practically neighbors. We live on a farm on the other side of Missouri. Take care and keep in touch.

  3. I picked up a book mark of yours and it had to be when I was judging a horse show in Missouri as it was in my judging bag. I was cleaning out and looked up your website and found it fascinating.

    In the past, I have tried to go to writing groups and most do not understand the intense passion of horses and what I do for a living. It is always nice to run across a horse person that writes and shares the passion with readers.

      Hi Lynette! Thanks for stopping by. I have donated goodies to horse shows for the judges, so that must be it. Sorry you are not in this area. We are open to new members, and everyone in the group either are already horse lovers or have become so over the years. Or, at least, they tolerate my stuff!! 🙂 Perhaps we’ll see each other some time at another horse show. Take care, Candace
