Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church at 308 4th Avenue South, Kirkland, WA 98033

Live and In-Person! Saturday, May 4, 1 to 4 p.m. with Guest Speaker Jolie Stekly.  Writers and illustrators, get ready to receive feedback from one of your favorite published professionals and eight of your peers within your same genre (PB, MG, YA). If you’re new to critique groups, you’ll get to experience a model critique group while strengthening your work and improving your editing process. Already a veteran of critique groups? Good news: you’ll enjoy feedback from fresh eyes and ears! Registration is: $25 for Members / $35 for Non-Members. (Fees are non-refundable.)

Join Jolie Stekly as she shares insights on "the give and take of critique"--including expectations for getting feedback, tips for giving feedback to others, and ideas for how to approach your work post-critique.
