Are you looking for a written critique from a children's book industry professional?  Our region is offering distance critiques from editors and agents to help you polish your work.

Written critiques will utilize the SCBWI Gold Form, where the agent or editor will make notes on the following: the positive aspects of this work; the elements that require attention and improvement; character development; plot/structure; language/diction; voice; marketability; and next steps.

Our Great Critique Faculty with availability at this time:

Christa Heschke, Agent, McIntosh and Otis, Inc. Picture book, MG or YA, fiction or nonfiction biography.

Liz Kossnar, Assistant Editor, Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, Picture book, MG or YA.

Rachel Orr, Agent, The Prospect Agency, Picture book or picture book dummy (either fiction or non-fiction), MG or YA Novels. Illustrators welcome.

Victoria A. Selvaggio, Assoicate Agent, The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency, Picture book, chapter book, MG, or YA, fiction or non-fiction.
