Writing Groups and Beta Readers: How to Give and Receive Criticism
Susanna Reilly, Susan Olesen, Phil Margolies, Alan Smale
Every author wants to hear that the first draft of their book is perfect. But, while Mom may be nice and say so, writers get a lot more help out of constructive criticism. Our panelists will discuss how to find the people to critique your work, how to be an effective critique partner yourself, and the proper way to accept or reject advice.
