Woodstock author Cynthia Simmons will be the guest speaker for the monthly meeting of New Life Writers. She will discuss:
The word critique is scary. All of us realize it’s related to the word criticize. However, an author who wants to get published values and seeks critiques. This workshop covers why you should do critique groups and how to do them well.

Active in Christian Authors Guild (CAG) she served as president, vice president, chaplain, and conference director as well as conducting writing seminars.
