Need some fresh eyes on your work? 

Want help getting through a tricky part? 

Stuck in revision paralysis?

Get what you need to keep your work moving and grow your writing craft and community at this monthly critique circle.

Facilitated by Wordcrafters instructor Daryll Lynne Evans, we’ll focus on a page or two of everyone’s story in a round table critique, one writer at a time. 

First, you’ll share the feedback you’re looking for, any necessary context, and what kind of story you’re creating. 

Then you’ll read your work in progress, up to 500 words, while others read along and make comments on their copy. Using your vision as a guidepost, your fellow writers will share constructive feedback to help you reach your goals. 

WHAT TO BRING: 8 copies of a page or two of your story (up to 500 words)

FORMAT: In the header or top left of the page: your name, email, and story title.
DOUBLE SPACED PAGES, 1-inch margins, 12-point serif font (Times New Roman, Courier, or Garamond)

MAXIMUM WORD COUNT: 500 words
