It’s almost time for SCBWI Western Washington’s favorite critique event!

SCBWI WWA will again present THE GREAT CRITIQUE on SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 2020, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm in Otto Miller Hall at Seattle Pacific University. This popular event offers you the opportunity to experience a model critique group led by a published professional.

Participants will receive feedback from a group leader as well as 8 of their peers from within the same genre. This event offers writers and illustrators a chance to experience how the critiquing process can help strengthen their work, and it offers those who already participate in a critique group feedback from a fresh set of eyes and ears.

WRITERS should bring 8 copies of a 500-word or less picture book text, or the first 500 words of your manuscript.

ILLUSTRATORS and WRITER-ILLUSTRATORS may bring a picture book dummy or up to 5 illustration samples.

NONFICTION creators should sign up for the appropriate age category for the work they plan to bring.


You must pre-register! Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and this event usually fills quickly—so don’t delay. Registration goes live in November!

Fees are non-refundable.

SCBWI members: $25

Non-members: $35
