Picture Books, with Victoria Rock, Cohort 1

April 26th, 2021 - May 18th, 2021

with Victoria Rock

Group full

Preparing your work for submission? In this intimate workshop, you'll receive market and editorial feedback on a picture book manuscript from Victoria Rock, Editor at Chronicle, and you will exchange critiques with a small group of peers.  

This workshop is geared towards writers who are getting ready to query, agented and/or published.

You'll submit a single manuscript at the group start, then spend the next weeks critiquing peer stories. Victoria will submit her notes near the critique deadline. After critiques are complete, we will have a debrief call where each writer gets individual time with Victoria to address key feedback themes and brainstorm next steps for their manuscript.

The group workshop format accelerates learning because, not only will you receive feedback on your own work, you will also be able to see and hear Victoria's feedback on the group's stories, which you will have read and critiqued. 

Each agent and editor event we offer also comes with a submission opportunity.
