There’s nothing like your own writing experience as invaluable guidance to other writers in a critique group. Your knowledge, familiarity with the writing process, and hours of practice are priceless when it comes to helping other writers. You hone your own self-editing skills as well.
If you’re not in a critique group, check out the SCBWI for possible partners.
