Power Tips for Receiving Critiques

Tuesday, July 21, 2020


(Lecture will be recorded for those who miss the live feed.)

One of the most common tips when receiving critiques is: Don’t take it personally. What does that mean exactly? Are there practical actions we can take that will help us receive a critique with greater grace and aplomb? And what about that extra spike of anxiety that rears up when our work is getting critiqued by an agent or an editor instead of a peer? What the heck can we do about that?

In this webinar that is all about the art and science of receiving critiques, Christine Carron, the Critique MD, will answer these questions and more. So whether you have a manuscript consultation coming up during the Summer Spectacular and want tips on how to keep your cool no matter what, or just want to have more confidence when receiving feedback in general, join this webinar to supercharge your critique receiving mojo.
