Critique Options

Add $69 — for an in-depth, personal critique of your one-page query letter from Brian Klems, one of the day’s instructors. (This rate is a special event value for Florida Writing Workshop attendees only.) Registrants are encouraged to take advantage of the specially-priced critique, so they can send out their query letter with confidence following the workshop. Also, if you are meeting with an agent at the event, you’re essentially speaking your query letter aloud to them. Wouldn’t it be wise to give that query letter (i.e., your pitch) one great edit before that meeting?

Add $79 — for an in-depth personal critique of the first 10 double-spaced pages of your novel. Spaces with faculty for these critiques are very limited, and participating attendees get an in-person meeting at the workshop. Options:

  • Children’s picture books: Faculty member Rob Sanders, a published kidlit and picture book author, will get your work in advance, edit your picture book (maximum of 1,000 words in length), meet with you for at least 10 minutes at the workshop to discuss his thoughts, and pass along written critique notes at the meeting.
  • Young adult and middle grade: Faculty member Shannon Hitchcock, a published YA/kidlit author, will get your work in advance, edit the first 10 double-spaced pages of your manuscript, meet with you for at least 10 minutes at the workshop to discuss her thoughts, and pass along written critique notes at the meeting. She is critiquing all kinds of YA & MG.
  • Romance (all kinds) and women’s fiction: Faculty member K.D. Fleming, a published romance author, will get your work in advance, edit the first 10 double-spaced pages of your manuscript, meet with you for at least 10 minutes at the workshop to discuss her thoughts, and pass along written critique notes at the meeting. She is critiquing women’s fiction as well as all subgenres of adult romance.
  • Literary fiction, mainstream fiction, general fiction, short stories, historical fiction, adult science fiction, adult fantasy, and memoir: Faculty member Lorin Oberweger, a published author and professional book editor, will get your work in advance, edit the first 10 double-spaced pages of your manuscript, meet with you for at least 10 minutes at the workshop to discuss her thoughts, and pass along written critique notes at the meeting.
