ABOUT:
Peer Critique Night
You’ve been working hard on your story, now it’s time to get some feedback from your peers. Please join us for our bi-annual PEER CRITIQUE NIGHT to see what’s really coming across in your pages.

Don’t have anything to share yet? No worries! You can still listen and give notes.

This may be the first (or any) FIVE PAGES of a YA, MG, Chapter Book/ or ONE FULL Picture Book. 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 divide people in groups over Zoom and you’ll be required to share your screen. It’s advised that you attend this Mingle on a computer.

(Please make sure your pages follow the SCBWI FORMATTING YOUR MANUSCRIPT guidelines on page 8 of SCBWI’s The Book.)

Book Tours/Author Events
Come share your thoughts on book tours and author events. Do they sell books? Are they for kids? What about virtual events? How creative do they need to be to work (think Harry Potter midnight release parties)? Share your favorite story from a book signing your attended — good or bad. We’ll also do a writing exercise envisioning your book event, so have your favorite writing instrument handy.
