PAID CRITIQUES
In addition to our free 15-minute appointments, find a little extra help or encouragement on that manuscript by purchasing a paid critique with a seasoned professional. You’re not going to want to miss this opportunity to have a trained pair of eyes look over your work, point out strengths, and offer personal ideas to improve your skills. There will be a charge of $30 for each critique, payable when you register. Since a limited number of consultations are available, we encourage you to register early to reserve your space so you will not be disappointed.

Attach your manuscript as a Word document. Double-space your manuscript and leave 1″ margins. Please do not send more than requested above. In your Word document, include your name and the title of your manuscript in a header on each page. Please send a separate email for each paid critique.


WRITER’S COLONY includes room and board (limited to 5 people)
One price: $300

Please note: Writer’s Colony option: A writer may use the class and workshop times at St. Davids to work on an important manuscript or a current project under deadline. With this option, you may attend plenary sessions in the evenings, plus all meals, but will not be allowed to attend any workshops or classes during the day. Instead, use those slots to do the writing work you need to finish. This option is for serious writers who need the time to work but who would still like to join everyone else for daily group gatherings that are not classes. Space limited to 5 conferees.
