Middle Grade & Young Adult Peer Critique Night

Our annual MG/YA Critique Night that was postponed last April, has been rescheduled for July!

To participate, choose about 1000 words (roughly four pages) from your manuscript. This may be the first 1000 words, or any other excerpt, but if you bring something from the middle of your book, expect to give a short summary of what came before. To assure everyone gets a turn, each author will get an allotted amount of time to read and receive feedback.

If you don’t write novels, or don’t want to bring material to share, please come anyway. Those reading will appreciate your input, and giving feedback can be as valuable as receiving it.
