This workshop is presented as part of the Artist in Residence Program.
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
As writers, we are often in the position of receiving feedback – sending submissions, awaiting notes from editors or friends, and hoping (always hoping!) for favourable and useful feedback. With this course, participants get to hop into the driver’s seat of reviewing written material, learning the ins and outs of what makes for effective critique. Generating tools for analysis that can be helpful for creators, teachers, bloggers, or anyone wanting to approach both their reading and writing with more thought and compassion – this exploration uncovers the mechanics of how to rise from knee-jerk opinions to critically informed.
