Auction Policies and Guidelines

CAC Artwork by Tricia Tharp

Critique Policy: All critique winners must take the Critteree Promise...

On my honor, I critteree promise…
  • not to whimper or weep upon reading my critique.
  • to remember I am asking for only one opinion. That is all.
  • not to take any comments personally. My work is being evaluated, not me.

 Guidelines for submitting a work for critique: 
  • All pages should be typed.
  • Manuscript formatting should follow standard guidelines. See this article on how to format your manuscript.
  • In general, you should email your submission in the form of a Word doc or RTF file, unless requested to do so otherwise.
  • Please allow the Critter time to review your submission. Feel free to ask JENNI if it takes longer than 4-5 weeks and you have not already been informed that it may take longer.

 Critter challenge for each auction: 
  • Place a bid by leaving a comment with YOUR NAME on that auction's blog post.
  • Please note the minimum bid for each auction (critiques start at $35, etc).
  • Bid in $5 increments until you win. 
What to do if you win:
Winners must claim their prize by contacting Jenni via email within 24 hours of the close of the auction after making your donation in the amount of your winning bid at Jenni's Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Walker Page and clicking DONATE NOW.

If the winner does not claim their prize within 24 hours of the close of the auction, the prize will be awarded to the previous bidder, and so on. PLEASE leave your full name on your comment with your bid amount if you are not registered or are using "anonymous" for this auction.  Thank you!

END AT 11:59 P.M., SEPTEMBER 1st,
unless otherwise stated on each individual blog auction post.
