To begin your registration for one of our Virtual Conference One-on-One Critique Sessions, please click on the brown "Sign Up" check box below and then the "Submit and Sign Up" button at the bottom of the page.
During our one-on-one critique sessions, members of the editorial board offer personalized feedback on a selection of your poetry or fiction, either as a written or as a virtual critique. Each written critique will be 500 words at minimum, with one follow up email for questions or clarification, and each virtual critique will last 15 minutes at minimum (in both cases, your session may be longer at the editor’s discretion). Poetry may be in any style, and fiction may be in any genre. Virtual critique times will be arranged on an individual basis and will take place in late October and early November; written critiques will be sent in late October and early November.
After you register, an email from Nimrod will follow with instructions for submitting your work for your session.
