Critiquing and Being Critiqued

Part of being an author is having your work critiqued and critiquing the work of others. Susanna Calkins, author of the Lucy Campion Mysteries (Minotaur Books/St. Martin’s), runs the critique program for Mystery Writers of America. In this session, she illustrates how to critique manuscripts in a positive and effective manner, and how to evaluate the critiques you receive from colleagues and editors.

 Susanna Calkins writes the Lucy Campion historical mysteries, which are set in seventeenth-century London. Holding a PhD in history, Susanna works at Northwestern University where she directs learning and teaching programs for faculty, offering sessions on such things as providing feedback and learning from failure . As a member of the Midwest Chapter of Mystery Writers of America, Susanna runs the Hugh Holton critique program, in which established authors provide detailed feedback on unpublished manuscripts.
