Every once in a while, I devote a post to those writers who are looking for critique partners. This is your opportunity to post about yourself and your writing in the hopes of finding a match among other readers.
If you want a critique partner, please leave a comment and include:
- Your audience (picture book, MG, YA, etc.)
- What you’re working on that’s ready for critique (genre, length, whether it’s finished or not, etc.)
- What you’re looking for in a critique partner
- Your email address, spelled out (ie: mary AT kidlit DOT com) to avoid spammers
I’ve heard from several readers who have connected with critique partners as a result of the blog, so I want to make sure nobody out there is wanting.
While I’m at it, I want to make sure you hear about an excellent opportunity for my Bay Area readers. Andrea Brown herself — the incredible, talented, and wise President of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, and I’m not just saying all those nice things because she’s my boss — will be teaching a workshop on landing an agent at Books Inc. on November 14th.
For those who can’t make it to the Andrea Brown Agency’s Big Sur workshop in December, this might be a great (albeit abbreviated) alternative. The workshop with Andrea Brown is on Sunday, November 14 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and it’s called: Publishing Secrets Revealed! Finding, Catching & Working with an Agent.
This fun, informative and interactive workshop will include information for writers of children’s books and adult books, covering details on working with an agent, finding the right agent for you, the seven fundamentals for writing strong fiction and everything writers need to know about the changing environment in book publishing.
Literary agent Andrea Brown has spent 35 years in the publishing industry as an editor, agent and author and will provide details, secrets and information to help writers at all levels. The cost of the workshop is $60 and it will be held at Books Inc. Opera Plaza 601 Van Ness Ave in San Francisco.
To sign up, email wordplay AT booksinc DOT net, call the bookstore at: (415) 776-1111 or go to Books Inc. Opera Plaza in person. You can find more information on the Books Inc. website.
