Critique group partners Jeri Chase Ferris, Connie Goldsmith, Patricia Newman, and Linda Joy Singleton have nearly 90 traditionally published fiction and nonfiction titles between them. Their awards and recognition include a Golden Kite, a Crystal Kite, a Green Earth Book Award, and YALSA Honors. They are presenting a special session where they will offer insight into their critique process and then stage one of their critique group meetings using up to eight different audience manuscripts. They will focus on overall themes, voice, character development, plot structure, word choice, and marketability. Newcomers and veteran writers alike will see a long-standing group at work and hopefully come away with a few new critique strategies for their own groups.
Cost is $35, includes written critique!
