    Critters is an on-line workshop/critique group for aspiring and practicing writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. The way it works is that you have to critique a number of stories each month in order to earn the privilege of having your own story critiqued. Your story is guaranteed a fair number of critiques due to the huge number of critters out there, some of whom are professional writers. This workshop is impressive and demonstrates what a valuable resource the internet can be.
