Peer Critique Night
“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.” – Frank A. Clark

You’ve been working on those stories, now it’s time to get feedback from your peers. Please join us for some instant feedback at our bi-annual PEER CRITIQUE NIGHT.

Email your five pages. (Please make sure your pages follow the SCBWI FORMATTING YOUR MANUSCRIPT guidelines on page 8 of SCBWI’s The Book.) This may be the first five pages or any other five pages, but if you bring something from the middle of your book, be prepared to give a short summary of what happened prior to those pages. We will put people in genre groups, so be sure to RSVP with what genre you are planning on bringing.
