The online critiques continue. But for October, the critique meet-up will feature a real treat: a mystery agent as our featured guest!


How It Will Work:

The mystery agent will provide verbal feedback on 10 participants’ manuscripts from 7:00-9:00 pm.

After the feedback session, the mystery agent will participate in a 30-minute Q&A session. Critique meet-up participants will have the opportunity to ask a question through the chat function; this session will be moderated by the SCBWI Ohio North Regional Team.

This free event is open to SCBWI members only and registration is required. You need to be logged in to SCBWI to register for this event.

The critique meet-up is virtual and will take place via Zoom. You will receive the meeting invitation the day before the event (and a reminder just before the meeting).


For Members Sharing Manuscripts with the Mystery Agent:

Each participant signed up to share will read their work aloud and be asked to share their manuscript on-screen so the mystery agent can read along.

You can share a picture book or pages from a longer work. There should be enough time to read an entire picture book manuscript (approx. 600 words) or 3-4 double-spaced pages from a longer work. The SCBWI Ohio North Regional Team will moderate if a piece is longer than what’s recommended for this event in an effort to keep the event on time for everyone.


Important note:

If you don’t see the registration form after 8:00pm ET on 10/4, try refreshing your browser (and make sure you are logged in).
