Intensive Critique Workshop

Central Oregon Writers Guild Presents

Intensive Critique Workshop

Looking for better feedback? How can you tell if a story is headed in the right direction?

With Author and Writing Instructor, Mike Lankford
Saturday, July 10
, 9:00-12:30 pm
COCC Redmond Campus, 2248 SE College Loop, Building 1, Room 128
Cost for readers $15/$10 for Guild members--$7 for observers/ discussion group members

Join us for this small group session limited to ten writers led by MIKE LANKFORD. Four writers may submit a ten-page manuscript (early novel chapter or short story) for critique in the workshop (first come, first serve) and agree to preview the other writer’s work before the class. The remaining six students may observe or actively participate in discussion. All participants will get the most benefit from the workshop by reading the four manuscripts using a set of Intensive Critique guidelines which will be sent to registered students.

“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 also 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
