So I am attending a writing workshop tomorrow. I can’t wait! I read the two stories we are critiquing and they are both great. I love getting feedback on my writing but part of that is GIVING feedback on the writing of others as well. With the writing workshop in Burlington I can do both.
Last week I had my short story for school critiqued and the feedback I received from the writing workshop was amazing. It really helped me to get my story where I wanted it to go. The professor even commented on my changes to the story and I told her about the writing workshop. This week, we are reading a story about two settled down hitchhikers and a young writer who needs a friend and finds one in an older writer she admires the work of. I thoroughly enjoyed both stories and had lots to say about both of them.
But I am really interested to hear about your own experiences with writing workshops. Were they good? Bad? Did you learn anything? Did you have fun? Did you enjoy meeting new people? What was the experience like – take us there!
I have to get up early for the writers workshop so I am sorry this is a short entry. I will let you all know how the workshop goes tomorrow!
