Help your work evolve from good… to GREAT! Your SCBWI Western Washington Region will again present THE GREAT CRITIQUE during our first 2011 meeting on January 11, 2011. This popular event offers you the opportunity to experience a model critique group led by a published professional. This year’s critique group leaders include Peggy King Anderson, Donna Bergman, Vijaya Bodach, Jennifer Bradbury, Kevin Emerson, Kathryn Galbraith, Liz Gallagher, Meg Lippert, J. Elizabeth Mills, Craig Orback, David Patneaude, Karen Lee Schmidt, Trudi Trueit, Richard Jesse Watson, Pam Withers, Kirby Larson, Holly Cupala, Michele Torrey, George Shannon, Deb Lund, Kevan Atteberry, and Wendy Wahman.
Participants will receive feedback from the group leader as well as from a small group of 5 or 6 of their peers. We will do our best to place you in a group with others within the same genre. This event offers writers and illustrators a chance to experience how critiques can help strengthen their work, and offers those who already participate in a critique group feedback from a fresh set of eyes and ears.
WRITERS can bring a maximum of 5 double-spaced pages or 1200 words.
ILLUSTRATORS and WRITER/ILLUSTRATORS can bring a dummy or up to 5 illustration samples.
This event is free for anyone who has paid for SCBWI Western Washington’s regional programming. SCBWI International members who have not paid for Western Washington's regional programming will need to pay just $8 to participate. For all others, the cost is $10.
