This course is for people who are working on their own writing. You’ll be asked to bring in 6 pieces of your writing for detailed feedback. All our pieces may be from the same work, such as a novel in progress, or they may be stand alone pieces. You're invited to bring whatever you want to work on.
Besides critiquing pieces, I'll also be giving short lectures at the start of each class. I’ll focus on teaching how to critique a piece of writing, and I’ll address other topics on request and according to the needs of the group.
In addition to learning how to critique your own work and receiving constructive suggestions about your writing, you’ll discover that the greatest benefits come from seeing how your classmates approach and critique a piece of writing and how they write and re-write.
This is a challenging course, but extremely rewarding.
