To participate, bring up to 5 pages of critique-ready work (4 copies) to share. In accordance with SCBWI critique guidelines, another critiquer should read your pages aloud, giving you the opportunity to listen to your prose or verse in action — a great test of readability. Bring fiction, nonfiction, illustration, poetry, synopses, query letters, or any other children's literature work you'd like to get feedback on.
