Manuscript Critique

polishing what you wrote in workshop

with Jennifer Springsteen

Critique groups are held in our Online Studio on every third Sunday of the month from 2pm to 4pm PST. 

Pre-registration and pre-posting of manuscript is required. Space limited to 5 writers each month.

Here is your opportunity to polish what you started in Weekly Workshops for critique and to improve your writing through the skill-developing process of critiquing draft manuscripts. Not only is it helpful to receive feedback about your own work, but it is a crucial muscle we all need to exercise to deeply work on another writer's draft.

Time: 2pm to 4pm PST

Cost: $20 each session

Location: PDX Writers Online Studio. Read more about our Online Studio workshops here.


Our group will be limited to a small group of writers who are enrolled in Weekly Practice Workshops. Writers will turn in manuscripts the Wednesday prior to our workshop and will read other participant's writing prior to the third Sunday. 

Guidelines: one poem, one flash story, 2-3 pages prose (double-spaced, 12 point font, 700 words max). Send in .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf. No microsoft pages or wordpad please.
