Tips for receiving critique:

  • Put on the hide of a rhinoceros.
  • When receiving critique don’t jump in to explain why you wrote it. Ask questions at the end of the critique.
  • No need to apologize for what you have written.
  • Listen with both ears. (Do not to interrupt.)
  • Take what you need, leave the rest.

Submissions may be up to 2500 words. We put together a simple Critique Submission Template as a guideline for formatting your submission.

Conference Critique Submissions cost $25.
