Critiquing other’s work can be a great way to identify problems in your own work, and become a better writer, so we are running a constructive criticism and critique workshop on Tuesday 6th February. The workshop will be led by Kathy Joy, who runs her own critique business at www.finetuneyourfiction.com.
The workshop will include:
- What makes a good critique?
- What is constructive criticism?
- How to give constructive criticism.
- How critiquing others work can help you become a better writer.
- How to fix issues found.
To participate, simply bring a 500 minimum – 1000 maximum word extract of a piece of work you wish to be critiqued. This can be from a short story or part of a novel/novella. Participants will swap work with each other and critique it in the workshop.
To help with the critique process, please ensure your manuscript sample is:
- Double spaced.
- Times New Roman font.
- From the beginning or near the beginning of your work, rather than in the middle or at the end. This is to help make it easier to work with.
If you do not have access to a printer, please email your work to firstname.lastname@example.org before 3pm on Tuesday 6th February. Be sure to include your name and the story title in the email.
Other things to bring:
A red pen, a blue pen, and a black pen.
Entry is £3 for member, £5 for non-members. Event is at 7:30pm on Tuesday 6th February at Anteros Arts Foundation in Norwich, near Fye Bridge and The Ribs of Beef pub.
