Gather with fellow writers and illustrators to receive feedback on your work, meet others looking to form critique groups, and share a picnic lunch while you network.
What to Bring:
Writers - up to 5 double-spaced, typed manuscript pages (or your entire picture book manuscript). Bring 5 copies.
Illustrators - book dummy or portfolio
Everyone - your own sandwich and non-alcoholic (park rule) drink, and a side dish or dessert to share. We’ll use the picnic tables, but you’re welcome to bring a lawn chair if you prefer.
Note: We love children, but this event is for the adults who write and illustrate for them!
Parking: FREE; first come, first served.
Facility: We've rented Pavilion #1 in Eisenhower Park from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (Critiquenic runs from 10:00 to noon). There are restrooms near the pavilion. The city does not guarantee electricity.
