Re: Thank you!!!
I almost forgot. How many words is a one page critique for a picture book manuscript?

Re: Thank you!!!
You can start at the top of the page, the way you would for a first page critique at a conference. It will help to give the title, genre, and total word count of the manuscript (which can take up one line). A typical one page critique is around 250 words, but a picture book can have a lot of short paragraphs so it might be under 200 (I just checked one of mine and it came to 175).

Congrats again, Jennifer! Let me know if you have any more questions. :)
