Critique Groups

Greetings MN SCBWI members,

I am Kevin Kunkel, the Minnesota Assistant Regional Advisor. Here are our current Critique Group Offerings:


– Virtual Picture Book Critique Group – this occurs over Zoom every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm. A sign up email gets sent about a week before those meetings. Keep an eye on your inbox, polish that manuscript you’ve been working on, sign up and join us


– Middle Grade and YA Critique Groups – correspondence based critique groups were brought together in 2022. These groups have members across Minnesota and Iowa (the region was combined at the time). I believe these groups still meet so please reach out to me if you are interested


– In person offerings – hoping to resurrect these soon. Stay tuned.
