August/ September Peak Critique Club
Get your prose in top shape with the Peak Critique Club. Weed out weak writing and learn story-strengthening strategies. Gain a greater understanding of what makes a story work, through critiquing other people’s pieces and having your own critiqued. Writing exercises and spot-training with Writing Coach Lori DeBoer will whip you into peak performance so you can reach your publication goals. Her clients have won many awards, including: Finalist, Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction; The Glyph Award; First Place, North American Travel Journalists Association; Salon Editor’s Pick; Finalist, Tin House Literary Award; Finalist, Southwest Writers Contest; Finalist, Colorado Book Award; First Place, Society of Professional Journalists.
This class is open to those working on short stories, personal essays, novels (any genre), memoirs or narrative nonfiction books. It is not suitable for those writing plays, poetry or children's picture books.
