2021 Virginia Festival of the Book – The Write Start: Moseley Speed Critiques

The Write Start: Moseley Speed Critiques

Register for the live webinar here. Registrations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Viewers may also watch the live stream on YouTube, and a recording of the event will be available afterwards at the same link.

Submit your first one hundred words of an original, unpublished manuscript for a speed critique by members of the Moseley Writers Group, all published in a number of genres. The Moseley Writers will read the anonymous first pages aloud, discuss story elements that work, and suggest story elements that could be improved. Entries will be critiqued according to the order in which they were received. The earlier you send your entry, the more likely it will be critiqued. Nonfiction, horror, violent material and erotica will not be considered. No attachments. Paste your entry in an email to by Monday, March 8, 2021.

This event is presented as part of the 2021 Virginia Festival of the Book's Virginia Writing & Publishing series, from March 13-26, 2021, with on-demand videos available after all live events.
