Critiques are a fantastic way to have your manuscript assessed by industry professionals. As a benefit to our attendees, we are offering two opportunities to have critique meetings:
This will enable you to have time to make adjustments and edits according to the feedback received prior to any pitching sessions at the conference. These meetings will take place via Skype, FaceTime or Zoom by appointment with the team member of your choice (list below).
2. During Conference!
Just like a traditional one-on-one appointment, your pre-conference submission will be reviewed and discussed with the team member of your choice’s open appointment schedule.
Please note: Critiques will close two weeks prior to the conference.
Q: Are paid critiques and the one-on-one appointments the same thing?
A: No! One-on-one appointments with the faculty are included in your registration fee. Critiques are an opportunity to have your work personally “critiqued” in a more in-depth manner than the one-on-one appointment allows time for.
Q: If I meet with the person who does my paid critique at the conference instead of pre-conference, do I lose any of my one-on-one appointment times?
A: Nope! If you and the faculty member who agrees to perform your critique are meeting at the conference, the faculty member will block off two twenty minutes for you to meet. You will still be able to get your one-on-one appointments.
