From Dreaming to Doing Conference: Critique Reminder

Wow, can it really be February 1st, already? January just swooshed on by and before we know it, it will be time to pack our bags for the upcoming From Dreaming to Doing Conference in Buckeystown, Maryland on March 18-19th. Which brings me to this important reminder from our lovely co-regional adviser, Kathy McMillan regarding those who have payed or who plan on paying for a critique:

Critiques

If you signed up for a critique, you are NOT guaranteed a slot with your chosen critiquer until all the following steps have been completed.  Critique materials must be received by February 17; slots with desired critiquers will be filled in the order all materials are received.

1. You must register for the conference and payment must be received for the conference and the critique.

2. You must send an electronic copy to lscarlson@mac.com

3. You must also send a printed copy of the manuscript to:

  • Loretta Carlson
  • MD/DE/WV SCBWI
  • PO Box 421
  • Bear, DE 19701

Critiques with agent Andrea Morrison are now closed, but many critique slots are still open with our other agents, editors, art directors, authors, and illustrators. This is a valuable opportunity to get detailed feedback on your work from professionals in the field.

Also, if you need some tips on how to get your submission in great shape, be sure to check out our past Conference Critique Workshop!

About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
