Online learning platform
A critique is for writers who want to elevate their work to a publishable standard by getting objective feedback about the technical aspects of their story from an experienced author.
It's about receiving constructive advice to help make your story the best it can be. We all need another pair of eyes to go over our precious words, and Sandy offers feedback in an honest and nurturing way, with thorough explanations, examples and suggestions.
