Feedback form is now closed.

Learn to appropriately critique a story in this interactive workshop. Middle and high school writers will submit their writing in advance, and YA authors Christina June and Katy Upperman will critique the first 500 words at the workshop. Works will be critiqued anonymously and with respect, so young writers can feel safe in submitting their stories and voicing their opinions. Attendees will leave the workshop knowing how to appropriately and respectfully critique their peer's work. Any pieces that are not critiqued during the session, due to time, will be returned with feedback to the author.
