The Jackson Hole Writers Conference is proud to offer manuscript critiques to registrants, at an additional fee. The three one-on-one manuscripts are a bonus for writers who want some feedback on their work in progress. The longer, one hour critique is geared toward the writer who has a manuscript in the works, whether that is a novel, memoir or a poetry collection. This is just another way we provide an intimate experience for attendees.
