Conference: Thick-Skinned Critique

The first time I watched Jerry Jenkins do a “Thick Skinned Critique” session, it changed my editing life.  I don’t when I’ve learned so much about writing and editing in one session.    Jennie Gillespie, President, SDCWG Guild

If you’d like to have the first page of your novel, nonfiction book, short story, or article considered for critiquing by Jerry during this session (anonymously—your name will not be revealed), transmit it (that first page only; no children’s books or poetry for the purposes of this session, please) no later than Monday, October 12, to this address:  info @
