Editors and Agent – Critiques & Craft Workshop July 2016

**Registration for the full workshop is now closed.

We have a special treat for this event: Senior Tor/Forge editors, Beth Meacham and Claire Eddy, are both joining us as group leaders! What this means is that they will be critiquing eight people each in the standard critique portion, AND you are guaranteed a flash fiction edit by one of these editors whether or not you make it into their group. A flash prompt will be given at the beginning of this event, then writing time allotted for, and upon deadline, each editor will take twenty attendees and edit on the fly. Flash will be limited to under 1k, and again, the prompt given during the event, but this is an amazing offer by our fearless leaders!

Agent Lucienne Diver will also be leading a critique group of eight people! That’s 24 attendees that will be critiqued by either an editor or agent! 

This will be a craft heavy event, working toward strengthening your novels or short stories, connecting with an agent, and learning the ins and outs of the industry from pros. Whether you’re just beginning your journey of the written word, are advanced and looking to polish, or even just network, we are a great community of authors and pros that support, nourish, and encourage one another. Hope you’ll join us this summer!

Submissions: This is a Milford-Style critique. You will be critiqued by your fellow group members and leader, and you’ll be critiquing their submissions as well. Word count of 4k max, submissions need to be in standard manuscript format, and if you submit a chapter that isn’t the first, please include a brief synopsis. Novel chapters or short stories welcome. Submissions due by June 30, 2016. Registration will be in touch with how to submit closer to the due date.
