The Great Critique

The annual Great Critique will occur in place of our regularly scheduled Professional Series Meeting on January 10, 2012. The Great Critique gives authors and illustrators the opportunity to experience a model critique group led by a published professional. Participants will receive feedback from the group leader as well as from a small group of their peers.

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. Participants will bring a maximum of 5 double spaced pages (or 1200 words) OR a dummy/illustration sample.

Attendees must register in advance, so please watch for registration information in mid-November. The number of spaces is limited. Since this is part of our Professional Series, priority is given first to those who have purchased a passport to the SCBWI-WW Professional Series Meetings, then to SCBWI members, then to others. Please carefully consider whether you would like to take advantage of this opportunity — if you sign up, we expect you to show up — and be aware that registration fills fast.
