Holley Rubinsky Memorial Blue Pencil Sessions

2021 will be the seventh year of the Blue Pencil Sessions, named for writer, teacher, and mentor Holley Rubinsky.

Past writers offering one-on-one critique have been Caroline Adderson (2016), Fred Stenson, (2017), Susan Musgrave (2018), Marilyn Bowering (2019), and Jenna Butler and Nelson’s Verna Relkoff (2020).

We’ve doubled the opportunities for professional critique so that writers working in fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry can receive valuable critiques from two accomplished writers and editors. One-on-one feedback sessions on 2,500 words (presubmitted) with Jenna Butler or Anne DeGrace will be held in July.

Once registered you’ll be invited to submit a one-page description of your project and any explanations or questions you may have, along with your writing, so that you can get maximum impact from your personal session with a talented literary professional.

Further details to come.
