Writers' Workshop: The Art of Critique

Friday June 16, 9 AM to 3 PM


Back by popular demand is this opportunity to learn the process of both giving and receiving critical commentary. Though participants work will be critiqued, that is a secondary benefit. There is an art to offering a critique without attacking and to receiving one without feeling attacked. Although criticize can mean to find fault with, the intent for 4th Street’s Workshop is better characterized as an important and useful evaluation.

  • Panelists: Beth Meacham, Skylar White, Max Gladstone, Arkady Martine
  • To allow sufficient time for exchange of materials, registration for the workshop will close Sunday, April 30, 2017.
  • Registration includes lunch.
  • Each participant will submit an example of their writing, 5000 words or less, which will be reviewed by two other participants.
  • Each participant will review two submissions.
  • Details for dates and submissions will be sent to those registered after registration is closed.
