I have explained on Area51 that if Code Review is a site that works for the Stack Exchange format, then Writing Critique works just as well!
Critique is off topic on Writing.SE (as explained in the site's help center). Everything except critique will be off topic on WritingCritique.SE. Therefore there will be no overlap.
If you want, you can think of this proposal in terms of SE programming sites:
- Writing.SE ≈ Stack Overflow
- WritingCritique.SE ≈ Code Review
Code Review, as Jeff Atwood has explained, is for
general broad-spectrum subjective feedback about blocks of code you've written
In the same way, WritingCritque.SE is about
general, broad-spectrum, subjective feedback about fiction you've written
The difference between Stack Overflow and Code Review has been explained by Oded:
- Problems with code. Something not working.
- Working code. Wanting to make it better.
Similarly, the difference between Writing.SE and WritingCritique.SE could be explained as:
- Problems with writing (as a craft).
Something about my approach to writing is not working.
- I know how to write.
I want to make this text better.
