Level II Critique Class. 6 to 8 pm. Every third Tuesday of the month for the whole year. Taught by Scott Hilton
Critique groups come together monthly for verbal sharing and feedback, with deadlines for submitting work and providing written comments taking place outside of the sessions.
After spending so much time with your own work, getting fresh eyes on a piece of writing is a priceless opportunity. Each led by a trained facilitator, Seven Bridge critique groups bring together experienced writers looking to learn from one another by trading constructive feedback on our work. Interrogating what sings and what needs development in others’ writing will prepare us to revisit our own. Critique groups come together monthly for verbal sharing and feedback, with deadlines for submitting work and providing written comments taking place outside of the sessions.
This class meets using Zoom or at the Groton Library.
Scott Hilton is a writer and teacher from Central Massachusetts who, like many of us, is on a journey of discovery and growth as a writer. He transitioned from a career as an engineer and leader in the Tech industry to an instructor at Tufts University and a writer. He is currently working on a Science Fiction novel set at the end of this century after a climate disaster. He joined Seven Bridges in the Fall of 2019 as part of an in-person (now Zoom) critique group as he learned the craft of creative writing and worked on his story. The critique group became a sanctuary of support, community, and pushing his writing to new heights. Scott brings a sense of curiosity, empathy, and inclusion to leading the critique group process. When not writing, he enjoys teaching graduate students about leadership and strategy, his second home in Vermont, and time with his wife, Judie, and grown children, Sarah and Andrew.
