We’re looking forward to our Read & Share on the 20th April from 10.30-1.30. Please bring about 25 copies of your short piece to share (around 100 – 150 words) – especially if you hope to invite critique from the group. Include your name at the top! Critique may then be written on a copy during the session and handed back to you.
Tanya Laing has helpfully provided a brief and helpful note about critiquing …
Do you understand the poem / prose? What is it about?
What are your favourite words / images / phrases. Why?
What ideas would you like to see developed? Imagery / rhyme / scheme / characters
How does the poem / prose make you feel? Emotional response.
Is there anything you didn’t understand or wasn’t clear?
