Play Nice, But Not Too Nice:
How to Give and Receive Powerful Critiques
by Ryan Urie
Giving and receiving useful feedback is at the heart of how we improve as writers. Yet, we rarely receive any guidance on how to do this well and so fail to make the most of our critique sessions. This interactive workshop provides detailed guidance, examples, and practice exercises to teach you how to make the most of the critiques you give and receive in order to transform your critique group from a social club for writers into a powerful source of continuous writing improvement.
*IWL hosts online member-only events. Join us today to attend all 2021 monthly member events.
