Profiting from a Critique
External feedback on your work is the most important way to grow your writing skills. But many writers fear public readings and critiques, hampering their advancement and self-editing process. Join us for this workshop and sidestep the spotlight while still reaping the benefits of a (semi)public critique. Attendees send in two pages of their work, which will be read and critiqued during the workshop. No one will be forced to claim their authorship, it’s up to you. You’ll receive a professional critique of your material, with helpful tips to avoid and repair errors, prevent gaffs, and garner feedback from classmates. You’ll also be able to offer your own feedback as well, and you’ll learn to recognize many common issues we all face in our writing endeavors. Time permitting, we’ll critique a few popular novel excerpts and see how they could be better written. Join in, share your work, and enjoy the critique process — it makes you a better writer!
