Third Wednesday of every month (View Calendar of Events)
6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Cottonwood Center for the Arts
427 East Colorado Avenue
Colorado Springs, CO

NOTE: Starting in September, the Open Critique sessions will move to the FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH. August will still be the third Wednesday.

This FREE program provides a critique experience for a small number of writers who seek feedback on manuscript pages and who want to learn how to have positive critique group experiences.

PPW’s Open Critique program is facilitated by Donnell Bell with the occasional experienced guest critique partner. During Open Critique, Donnell and the guest critique partner will provide comments, criticism and suggestions on participants’ manuscript pages, as well as model positive behaviors, techniques and procedures for critiquing.

It is our hope that participants will not only receive valuable feedback on their writing, but will also learn how to create great critique groups of their own, or learn how to improve existing critique groups.

Each month Open Critique will accommodate up to eight participants with a maximum of eight manuscript pages (double spaced, one side) per person. Bring at least 8 copies. To request a slot to participate, email your request to critique@pikespeakwriters.com. Slots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and are only considered for the month in which they are received. Participants will receive confirmation and instructions via email.

PPW reserves the right to give priority to new participants over those who have attended multiple times.

Donnell Ann Bell, your Pikes Peak Writers Board Member at Large (BMAL), and as such, she’s excited to be your Open Critique Facilitator. She writes Suspense too Close to Home and is the author of three published novels, The Past Came Hunting, Deadly Recall, Betrayed and an upcoming September 2014 release Buried Agendas.
