Critiques for Water is Auctioning off the opportunity for a 25 page and synopsis critique by Lorin. If you have a YA or MG manuscript, this is a great opportunity to work with a world class editor. I worked with Lorin at the Donald Maass Breakout Novel Intensive workshop, and she really knows her stuff!
