PROGRAM: The Art of the Critique
By Barbara Flores
A successful critique is a powerful tool in an author’s arsenal, but the mere mention of the word can often make a writer cringe with fear. What constitutes a successful critique? What are commonalities? How can you gauge receptiveness? How can you critique someone with more writing experience? What is taboo and what is not? Barbara Flores will answer all your questions and lead you through what can be a prickly maze or a work of art.
Even experienced authors need love and not only benefit from critiques, but will be present to offer sage advice. In addition, Barbara will help attendees find local connections to facilitate the forming of personal critique groups. Please bring 3 pages and be prepared to read aloud to your table.
