Bring your laptop and ten to twelve (10-12) copies of what you plan to work on during the weekend. If you have a picture book, you may bring more than one. Please know that you can bring a different selection of pages to each group.

Industry standard for your pieces: 12 pt. Times New Roman font / double space / indent first sentence in each paragraph.

If you are an illustrator, bring your artwork so we can display it.

*Our critique groups are made up of, at most, 5 writers and one mentor. Writers are requested to bring 10 pages of material, which will be read out loud and critiqued by the group.

  • Printer and printer paper (if you have a personal printer available)

  • A thumb drive with your WIPs

  • Good walking/hiking shoes

  • Sunscreen if you plan on working on your pages outside
