The Artful Critique: Feedback without Fury, Fear, or Flailing by Beth Pattillo

One of a writer’s most valuable resources is a good critique. Whether it’s from an editor, a contest judge, or a critique partner, appropriate feedback helps us to grow as writers and refine our craft.

Join us as we review the ‘do’s and dont’s’ of critiquing as well as discuss what makes some critiques more valuable than others. Then we’ll have some time for open critiques, so bring a few pages of your work in progress to read and receive feedback. Even if you’re not yet ready to share, you can learn a lot from listening to others’ work being critiqued!
