Peer Critique
Monday, November 16, 2015

Autumn-Leaves


Peer review refers to the many ways in which writers (students) can share their creative work with peers for constructive feedback and then use this feedback to revise and improve their work. For the writing process, revision is as important as drafting, but writers (students) often feel they cannot let go of their original words. By keeping an audience in mind and participating in focused peer review interactions, writers (students) can offer productive feedback, accept constructive criticism, and master revision. ReadWriteThink.org

Submit your Work in Progress for Peer Critique to  novachristianwriters@gmail.com by Wednesday, 11/11/2015. 

Additional information at: NVCWF Peer Critique

Peer Critique is open to everyone. Please come to help the rest of us with your feedback.
