Denver South Connect & Critique

Date(s) - 02/28/2021
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This event will take place over Zoom.

Topic: Subtext and Subplot: Exploring the underlying layers

Details:  In the first part of the meeting, Coral Jenrette and Judy Rose will present on subtext and subplot in novels and picture books. This will include how illustrations can provide subplots in picture books and planning for illustrations as the author. In the critique portion, we will break up into smaller Zoom rooms by genre (PB, MG+YA, or other, such as query letters). Novelists are encouraged to bring selections from their work where they’d like feedback on subtext and/or subplots.

RSVP: Contact Susan Wroble at for the zoom link and more details.
