Effective Feedback: How to Give It and What to Do with It
As we enter contest season, it’s a good time to look at feedback.
Join us for a panel including Golden Rose Coordinator Laurel Newberry, third place finisher in the 2017 Golden Rose contest Disa Dawn, and writer and editor Shea McLeod.
We will be looking at the specifics of the Golden Rose contest score sheet and offering ideas for how to give constructive comments that build better writers. This discussion will help with the Golden Rose and other contests as well as when you serve as a critique partner or alpha or beta reader — or just try to incorporate feedback from your writing network or editor.
Bring your questions about the editing process, how to analyze and incorporate feedback, and how to provide useful feedback to your fellow writers.
