St. Louis Writers Guild: Strategies for critique partners and groups

Critique is essential to any writer’s betterment, but receiving criticism on one’s hard work is a difficult thing!
Author/illustrator Jennifer Stolzer will discuss how to find errors, target weaknesses, and explore possible writing solutions in a critique group setting during a workshop from 10 a.m. to noon, Aug. 5, at The Lodge Des Peres, 1050 Des Peres Rd., St. Louis, MO., 63131. Free to St. Louis Writers Guild members; $5 for nonmembers.
Jennifer, who heads the Guild’s critique group program, will discuss protocol and tactics when it comes to both giving and receiving criticism from other authors.
She lives and works in St. Louis, MO. Jennifer graduated from Webster University with a degree in digital media and animation, and uses this skill set to create bright and engaging characters in both pictures and words. Her illustration company, Jennifer Stolzer Illustration, has served the St. Louis area and its authors for seven years.
