Getting the Most Out of Your Critique Group: You’ve joined RMFW, you’re on fire after the Gold Conference, now what? It’s time to take advantage of one of the best resources of this organization – the critique groups. If you’ve never participated in a critique group before, it can be a bit like a blind date from an internet dating service. Join RMFW’s Critique Chair, Monica Poole, along with Shawn Harper and Lisa Manifold, to discuss what makes a great critique group. They will provide guidelines to help you get the most out of any group you’re part of. MORE INFO.
