Teen Critique Group
Mondays, May 18-June 22, 3pm-4pm

Teen Critique Group with Rebecca A. Demarest

Our teen writers asked for it, and here it is! Together, we’ll learn workshop etiquette and engage in workshopping one 5k word story per student over the course of six weeks. We will use the Milford critique method that Clarion West utilizes during their intensive residential workshops. Students should be open-minded and excited to read their peers’ stories in progress. This workshop is a commitment for a small and dedicated group, so please make sure you have the time to write, read, and critique stories every week outside of class and can attend all class sessions.

Teen class for ages 14-18.  

This class has 6 sessions on Mondays from 3-4pm.

About the Instructor: 

Rebecca A. Demarest is an award-winning author, book designer, and publisher living in Seattle with her husband and two canine muppets. When she isn’t reading or writing, you can find her teaching writing, publishing underrepresented playwrights, crafting, sewing, tending her indoor jungle, or trying in vain to teach her pups manners. For more information on her work, please visit http://rebeccademarest.com.
