The Great Critique

Date(s) - 01/09/2021
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm




SCBWI WWA will present THE GREAT CRITIQUE on SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 2021, from 12 to 2:00 p.m., via Zoom. 


This popular event offers writers and illustrators the opportunity to receive feedback from a published professional and peers, while experiencing a model critique group made up of creatives from within the same genre. 


Participants new to critique groups will get a chance to experience how the critiquing process can help strengthen their work, while those already in a critique group will enjoy feedback from a fresh set of eyes and ears.




How will this work via Zoom?

After registration closes on December 30th, attendees will receive an email with instructions on how to join the event via Zoom. You will upload your manuscript or illustrations to a OneDrive folder that you will receive in an email. At the event, the OneDrive folder will be available to all participants in the group for feedback. Your manuscript or illustrations must be uploaded by January 6th to participate. No last-minute changes or uploads.


     ** WRITERS may share the first 500 words of their manuscript.

     ** ILLUSTRATORS and WRITER-ILLUSTRATORS may share a picture book dummy or up to five illustration samples

     ** NONFICTION creators should sign up for the appropriate age category for the work they plan to share


You must pre-register! Since space is available on a first-come, first-served basis, the event usually fills quickly—so don’t delay. Registration coming soon!


It’s a Great Critique like never before!


Fees are non-refundable.
