ABOUT:
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 and queries, now it’s time to get feedback from your peers. Please join us for some instant feedback at our bi-annual PEER CRITIQUE NIGHT.

Since we are on Zoom, we’re doing things a bit differently. You have the choice to submit either the first 500 words of your manuscript or have your one-page query critiqued (all double spaced, 12-point font). All critiques must be emailed to us before June 13th and should be labeled with your name and project title. Include in your email if you are working on a Picture Book, Chapter Book, Middle Grade, YA, or something else.

During our Mingle, we will break into two groups to review each other’s work. Time permitting, we’ll join back up towards the end to share feedback and wrap things up before heading off for summer break.
