How can you get useful feedback on your works-in-progress? How can you limit the reader feedback you don't need? In this workshop, participants will learn a range of strategies for asking for and getting feedback from different types of readers in a range of contexts, including writing groups, mentors and editors, and co-authors. Participants will have the opportunity to practice at least one feedback strategy and are welcome to bring a short piece of writing (1-2 pages) in any stage of development to exchange in a small group. Writing could be scholarly, professional (teaching statement, e.g.), or fiction. Writing exchange is optional. Co-sponsors: Faculty Write Program and the Franklin Humanities Institute. Lunch provided by the Publishing Humanities Initiative. (Please click below for "more info" to register to help us count lunches.)
