From Selene:

“It was getting critiques which helped me land my first book contract. You simply cannot be unbiased about your own work. I joined several writers’ groups, and it was feedback from published authors which gave me the courage to proceed, because they were proof that it could be done! Even in my creative writing masters program, group critiquing was an essential ingredient. Now I want to help Long Island SCBWI members succeed like I did. I envision this as a think tank. We can learn from every manuscript, both by providing out thoughts and listening to the thoughts of others.”
