Have you ever wondered what a critique from a professional editor is like? Do you wish you could have an editor's support and feedback, but you don't feel ready to incur the cost? Or, are you just starting out and would like to know what's important to keep in mind as you begin to craft a memoir, a collection of poetry, or a novel? Writespace members, come share fellowship with your fellow writers as we enjoy an encouraging and supportive roundtable of first page critiques. In three hours we will embark upon a fast and fun, yet in-depth adventure in which we explore the fundamentals and subtleties of dozens of craft elements essential to composing great stories. By the end of our session, attending writers will have attained greater clarity about what questions good writers ask as they work, as well as a clearer sense of what editors and agents look for when they receive a pitch or a submission. Also, each writer will be assigned an exercise or prompt customized to the page we critiqued and designed to vitalize both the specific work and the writer's development.

Please bring to workshop ten printed hard copies of the double-spaced first page of a work of any genre, for the group and the instructor’s review. If your submission stops mid-sentence, instead of ending at a "natural place,” this will be fine.

Please note: This workshop is for Writespace members—if you are not a member and would like to attend, please join Writespace at this link.
