Learn how to provide useful critiques without tipping into either bland applause or painful discouragement

Everyone wants a good critique for their manuscripts, but it can be overwhelming to try and provide useful information without tipping into either bland applause or painful discouragement. This workshop will include suggestions on:

  • developing an initial framework for what the critiquer and critiquee can expect
  • balancing identifying problems with positives
  • communication tools that can help an author to be excited about improving their manuscript rather than dread about it being ripped apart

About Jennifer Carole Lewis

How do you define a person? Can I be named, catalogued, numbered, and filed? As it turns out, for the most part, you can. Here are some of the roles I’m most proud of.

I’m a mother of two wonderful boys. I’m a writer of paranormal romance. I’m an unabashed comic and movie geek. I love to read. I enjoy science fiction, urban fantasy, and romance (paranormal, suspense, adventure, and many other subgenres) on the fiction side. In non-fiction, I enjoy biographies, political and cultural commentary, true crime, and relationship exploration.

I’m Canadian. I’m a fan of irony. The vast majority of my life runs to a musical soundtrack (ranging from classical to metal to pop to children’s music) and I like it like that. I’m a believer in eclecticism, destiny, and the power of energy in the universe. I definitely believe there is more out there than we will ever understand and I hope we never run out of mysteries to explore.
