Salem: “Critique Groups – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” with Elizabyth Harrington

February 22, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

On Thursday, February 22nd from 6:30-8:30 p.m. (talk begins at 7 p.m.), Elizabyth Harrington will present to our chapter at the Salem Public Library (Anderson Room B), 585 Liberty St SE.  

“Critique Groups – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” 

As a serious (or not so serious) writers, we know the benefits of a critique group. Perhaps we were told by well-meaning friends or mentors that we need to join one to improve our writing. Or perhaps we’ve heard that a critique group can help us polish our manuscript into something worth publishing (or at least submitting to an agent). But all critique groups are not created equal. Join 9 Bridges Executive Director, Elizabyth Harrington, as she explains how critique groups can help you become a better writer. Learn the differences between different types of groups, how different types of critiques can help you polish different aspects of your writing, and how to assess your individual needs as you find the group that’s right for you.
