- Each individual brings six copies of a piece they want critiques. You will never receive more than six individual critiques. Larger groups are divided into groups of 4-6 because the two hour meeting time is strictly adhered too. Frankly, more than six commenters makes your head spin.
- Maximum word count is 1500. This allows everyone in the group time to be critiqued and doesn’t become too tedious. The goal is to give you helpful input to apply to your whole manuscript as you work on it.
- Samples must be double-spaced, Times New Roman. This is the industry standard and gets writers in the habit of formatting professionally. Double spacing makes it easier to add edits to the page.
- Line numbers are added making it easier to refer to problem sentences during the oral critique.
