"No Holds Barred" Critique Workshop at Comicpalooza!

There are two salient tidbits here:
  • First, Comicpalooza is just two weeks away, so I'll see you there wait you haven't registered yet what are you doing go register now.
  • Second, there will be a critique workshop YES YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT. If you are a person who likes putting words on pages and want to get some professional feedback on those words from writers, editors, and publishers, then boy have I got a deal for you. Read on...

Author Shannon Winton, writer and critic Kevin Ranson, Jason Aydelotte of Grey Gecko Press, author Diana Dru Botsford, and yours truly (yes that's me) will critique up to 10 works of up to 2,000 words each in a three-hour workshop. We will be gentle.*

The workshop will be Saturday, May 23 from 2:30 - 5:30 pm. Send your submission to literature@comicpalooza.com by May 15. And really, why wait?


*So it IS called the "No Holds Barred Critique Workshop." We'll provide candid, straightforward critiques, but our goal is to help writers hone their craft.
