The structure will be different this year–online rather than in person. Attendees will be assigned to a breakout room in Zoom with an agent or editor for feedback and conversation (in small groups of about 6, not individually, for pro critique as well as peer critique). Each attendee will share their screen with the group or read aloud to the group, and will have five minutes to present as much of their work as they like and ten minutes to get feedback from the group.

It is strongly suggested that you have a completed work at the time of the workshop.

Following the group critiques will be a brief panel discussion with the attending professionals–to discuss acquisitions, and answer questions.
