Prose Critique Intensive Workshop
Writing workshop in New Jersey
January 12-15, 2018
Led by Judith Lindbergh
Whether you’ve just begun your writing journey or have plodded through revision after revision, receiving constructive feedback is essential to the creative process.
In this supportive, critique-centered workshop, you will:
- Share excerpts of your writing—options include novel, memoir, creative nonfiction or short story
- Receive thoughtful, practical suggestions from both your workshop leader and fellow participants to strengthen your pieces
- Discuss technical and aesthetic concerns from structure to point-of-view, character development, style, pacing and more
Bring up to five double-spaced excerpts of no more than 1,000 words each. You will be encouraged to revise your work and bring new drafts to later sessions for further critique during the weekend. Leave recharged with plenty of ideas for polishing your writing and the motivation to push forward.
*Limited to just 10 participants.*
“Any anxiety I had when I came to the Winter Getaway quickly disappeared. The conference is expertly run with beautiful accommodations, a comfortable tone for writing and sharing and a sea of talented writers.”
~ Jane, Hackettstown, NJ
