Hi Chelsey Congrats on all your great writing and insightful reviews. I think it would be brilliant if you joined our "New Critics" group on here. Click on GROUPS and then click on the group called NEW CRITICS. I'm looking for ways to reinvigorate the group and get people taking and you guys, the Bridgend Young Critics, are exactly what the group needs - people with excellent experience and reviews! Let me know what you think. Thanks x
