Critique Workshop

Each participant brings one piece of writing, up to 2,500 words (just one copy; writer reads their own work) to present to the group; and receives guidelines on the art of “Gentle Critique.” Following each reading, every member of the group uses the guidelines to offer feedback and suggestions – based on the guidelines – to help each participant strengthen their work. Great opportunity for those who are in the middle of writing, or who are preparing to edit, a large piece of work, to learn how their writing is perceived by a reader.
