What is Cozy CRIT-ters?

Cozy CRIT-ters is a writing critique group supporting authors and writers of cozy mysteries, traditional mysteries, and whodunits. PUBLISHED or UNPUBLISHED writers are WELCOME! We also accept writing on the fringe of cozy or cozies with an edge. The cozy sub-genre is often misunderstood by traditional critique groups, so we thought we would create one that is cozy-specific.


We have a face-to-face critique group in the Orange County, California area (between Huntington Beach and Anaheim). Meetings are on the 1st Wednesday and 3rd Saturday of each month. UPDATE: This group is meeting via Zoom during COVID-19 social distancing.

The co-founders and admins of Cozy CRIT-ters are Sherry Bridges Clitheroe (writing as Abigail Leigh Reed) and Karen Sue Walker.
