Blue Pencil Bonanza

Our January MNM will be a fun, interactive meeting where you can get quality feedback on your work in progress. Divided by genre, each table will be facilitated by a WCDR member professional. Submit for feedback or simply observe, it’s up to you, no pressure. Participating in any way in the critiquing process will strengthen your writing and give you a broader understanding of how readers interpret words on the page. Please be assured, all critiques will be kind and constructive. The WCDR is your safe place.

Submission is a Members-only opportunity, but guests are welcome to observe.

Please note: Because we need to organize the submissions in time to be reviewed, the deadline to sign up will be January 2, 2019 for those who want to be critiqued. You can, of course, attend the meeting as an observer if you miss the deadline.

Submission Guidelines: double-spaced, 1" margins, Times New Roman or Courier New, 12 point font
