Eastern PA SCBWI Critique-a-thon

5 authors
5 agents
5 editors

60 participants
1 happy co-ordinator

The First Annual Critique-a-thon took place in Lancaster, Pa. yesterday. I participated as one of the five published authors. We each critiqued 15 manuscripts. So did the agents and editors.

Sixty hopeful children's writers received wonderful feedback, inspiration and hope. A triumphant success, so much so, it is planned again for next year, September 10, 2011 at the same place, The Mulberry Art Gallery, Lancaster.

See you all there. It was WELL-WORTH the trip.

Happy writing!
