Colorado Springs Connect & Critique

Date(s) - 11/15/2020
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

This event will take place online over Zoom.

Topic: Thinking Outside The Box: Part II. In October we tried our hand at creating a pitch for a children’s book before writing the actual manuscript. Everyone seemed to enjoy this exercise in helping us all to learn to get to the heart of our story and keep it in mind while writing the MS.  In November, we will bring back rough drafts for the manuscripts that pertain to our pitches.

Remaining time: Critiques. Share (on screen or orally) your entire picture book manuscript or an excerpt (5 pages) of your Chapter Book, MG or YA manuscript.

Contact: for more info and for the Zoom link.

SAVE THE DATE: On December 6th Teresa Funke will be our guest speaker. Teresa is the award-winning author of seven novels for adults and children based on history and true stories. Tune in to next month’s call for events for more about this exciting Zoom event.
