Win a 100-Page Critique From Janice Hardy

By Janice Hardy, @Janice Hardy

For the last several years I've participated in the Brenda Novak online auction for Diabetes research. This is a fantastic charity where writers and literary folk from all over donate time, prizes, and other goodies to help out a worthy cause.

This year, up for bids is a 100-page critique from me.

There's no time limit to when you can submit your pages and no genre or market requirements. If you're a regular follower of the blog, you have a pretty good idea of what my critique style is like from the weekly Real Life Diagnostics, and I give these charity critiques my full attention and really dig in. I'm happy to answer questions and discuss your critique after as well (I never crit and run).

There's also a ton of other items up for bid, including a slew of terrific things from my writer/agent brothers and sisters at Nelson Literary Agency, so head on over and take a peek!


  1. Wow!! Great critique opportunities!

  2. It is a great auction and for a wonderful cause. That critique sounds like an AWESOME prize to win :-)

  3. Thanks guys! It's great that so many folks come out to support this.

  4. Yeah, great prize. I'll throw my hat in the ring, although I may not win it. :D
