Intensive Critique Workshop

Central Oregon Writers Guild Presents

Intensive Critique Workshop

With Author and Writing Instructor, Mike Lankford

Saturday, May 8, 9:00-12:30 PM
COCC Redmond Campus, 2030 SE College Loop, Building 1, Room 128
Cost for 4 readers: $15/$10 for Guild members--$7 for non-readers

Looking for better feedback?

Want to help others see what is or isn’t working in their manuscripts?

How can you tell if a story is headed in the right direction?

Join us for this small group session limited to ten writers led by Mike Lankford. Four writers may submit a ten-page manuscript (early chapter of novel or short story) for critique in the workshop (first come, first serve) and agree to preview the other writers’ work before the class. The remaining six students may observe or actively participate in discussion. Everyone who signs up for the workshop will get the most benefit by reading the manuscripts being critiqued before coming to the workshop. A set of review questions will be given to registered students. *Deadline to submit work for workshop, May 1.

“The proper approach to any work is to treat it as your own,” says Mike Lankford, who teaches at COCC and conducts a private workshop in Bend.

Mike Lankford is a graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop and the author of Life in Double Time, a memoir. He has ghost written twelve books and is working on #13—in addition to his own work which is currently a novel and a second memoir. He can be contacted at
