Open Critique Groups
Whenever we have a free Saturday morning chapter meeting, we offer open critique groups for writers and illustrators during the second hour (11:00 am - 12:00 pm).
To participate in open critique groups, bring up to 5 pages of critique-ready work (4 copies) to share. In accordance with SCBWI critique guidelines, another critiquer will read your pages aloud, giving you the opportunity to listen to your prose or verse in action — a great test of readability. Bring fiction, nonfiction, illustration, poetry, synopses, query letters, or any other children's literature work you'd like feedback on.
