Going to Chicon? Want a pro critique?

Ten slots remain in the Writers Workshops at Chicon 7, the 70th World Science Fiction Convention. As the official website describes it:

“The Writers Workshops at Chicon 7 will be small-session workshops for either experienced or beginning writers based on manuscripts submitted in advance. These workshops will provide Chicon 7 members the opportunity to have their manuscripts evaluated by selling writers and industry professionals who enjoy helping them grow as writers. Many of these professionals have taught at residency workshops such as Clarion or in creative writing programs.

“Each session will ideally consist of submissions from three participants to be critiqued by the other participants and two to three professionals. The manuscripts will be circulated in advance to both the participants and the professionals. A workshop session lasting two hours will critique all three submissions, or provide a critique with directed instruction, at the discretion of the professionals in each session.”

Go to to ask for a slot.

See you there.
