* You will be assigned to a critique with others who are writing similar (age and genre) materials. You will exchange manuscripts prior to the conference via email. At this initial get together, you will meet and discuss what you have read.

** Ms. Levin will meet with each critique group to discuss questions related to the kind of materials you are writing. While this is not individual critiques, it is a chance to discuss general concerns about writing for a particular age group or in a particular genre.
