Writing doesn’t have to be a solitary pursuit… Workshopping is a great way to meet other writers and to develop your writing. Discover the ins and outs of giving, receiving and applying constructive feedback. Learn how to create a safe, creative workshopping space. And, have a go at workshopping your own writing in the practical component of this session. Participants are encouraged to bring 800-1200 of their own words to share.

This workshop will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.

You will learn:

  • How to workshop to develop your writing and writing projects.
  • How to give and receive constructive feedback.
  • How to apply feedback to your own work to improve it.
  • How to find workshopping opportunities.
  • How to workshop your writing – this is a practical component of the session, allowing participants to workshop their own work and to provide feedback to other writers.

Please bring a piece of writing – fiction or non-fiction (800 – 1200 words long) to workshop with the group. This may be a complete work or part of a longer piece of writing. It may also be at any stage of development, from a first to final draft or somewhere in-between.
