"Thank you Beth and Ezra! The information you shared is very helpful. I learned a lot! I appreciate both the succinctness of the presentations you offer via outlining and reviewing objectives, and your professional yet upbeat style of delivering your material!"

- Mary Van Everbroeck, fiction and nonfiction writer

Special Webinar Training!

Ezra and I have been in critique groups and had critique partners for 20+ years and credit them as part of our success at staying the course as writers. (More specifically, Ezra's been in critique groups for about 28 years; I joined my first one 19 years ago. And, Ezra and I met in that critique group.)

Having a critique partner and/or participating in a critique group can help you:

-- get your writing done

-- improve your writing

-- expand your knowledge

-- stay the course when you feel like giving up

In this special bonus training, Ezra and I go over:

-- how to find critique partners and a critique group

-- what to look for in a good group and partners

-- how to screen for people who would be a good fit

-- best practices for being a participant

-- how to handle difficult situations

This training includes:

-- Training webinar

-- Slides

-- FAQ

-- Checklist for Your Criteria for a Critique Partner
