Participants will be divided into breakout rooms in Zoom to share and critique pieces. Please ensure your camera and microphone are working.

Guidelines for the Critique Group:

* Share what you liked and what you thought worked well in the piece.
* Identify areas that you donít understand or where communication with the reader breaks down.
* Identify craft-related areas of concern (point of view, verb tense, clarity, filtering, redundancy, clichť, sensory details, metaphor, dialogue, narration, pacing, drama, back story, action, intent, scene, structure, etc.).
* Identify craft-related areas of possibility (same list).
* Do not micromanage or try to rewrite for the author; focus on the piece in front of you, not what you would have written.
* Be nice. Be honest. Be of service.

For the Author During Workshop:

*Be quiet and listen actively.
*If you need to explain the piece during workshop, it means the information isnít on the page.
*Make notes of what you hear and want to say, so that you can include it in your revision.
*After feedback is offered, thank everyone for their time, and ask and answer questions.
*You may hear a lot of different opinions, but always remember this is your work and you get to decide how it is written.
*Bear in mind that if you get the same feedback from a lot of people, itís certainly worth taking note.
