Description of Class
All writers need outside eyes on their work. The right feedback at the right time can help a writer take a piece to the next level. But knowing the type of critique to ask for and what to do with that feedback can overwhelm even the most accomplished writers.
In this single session class, we will explore the personal barriers that make receiving feedback challenging and how to get the most out of critiques. By digging deeper into their personal relationship with feedback, students will identify ways to process and utilize critiques while staying true to their vision. Additionally, students will learn techniques for providing effective feedback that supports their fellow writers and their work. This class is for writers looking to improve on their ability to apply critiques to their work in progress, those who struggle with getting critiques, and those who want to deepen the critiques they give.
The session will include a lecture on feedback techniques and exploring the personal aspects of receiving feedback, as well as a paired feedback session with another participant. Students should bring 2 pages of a work in progress to be critiqued by a fellow student.
