My wife and I will be going to the Gala. We just drove through Topanga Canyon to see the ocean today, and it made me think of you Preston :) I hope the workshop is going great!

Re: Q4 story critique exchange

I have a 12,500 word piece that I would love to have critiqued. I am happy to exchange the first 450, 1000, or even full ms, depending on what people are open to. Would anyone be interested in swapping? Please PM me if interested.
