The Manuscript Critique Workshop

(Only the first twelve will be accepted and must pre-register @ [email protected])

If you’ve ever attended a writers conference and thought I wish I could actually work on my current project, this track is for you. Using Word Weavers International critique group guidelines, attendees will have the opportunity to refine their current work-in-progress. Pre-conference emails will be sent explaining formatting requirements and critique procedure, for those who aren’t familiar with the WW critique method. Participants will bring six pre-printed copies each, of 4-5 submissions of 1500 words. (That’s a potential 6000-7500 words critiqued. Awesome, right?)

Attendees will be placed in groups of no more than 6, according to genre. Space is limited and is on a first come, first served basis to those who register for the entire conference. Come discover what you’re doing right, what needs improvement, and how to make those improvements. If we have enough interest, we will divide up by genre, with fiction, speculative/paranormal, and non-fiction groups.
