Fishbowl Feedback: Boost Your Revision Process
Feeling shy or stuck with your draft work? Need some feedback to keep your writing practice moving forward? In this class, the instructor will give each participant rigorous and supportive verbal feedback on one draft poem. Participants will receive specific details about effective elements in their draft, as well as strategies and suggestions to expand possibilities for revision. Participants will gain new insights by observing all the "fishbowl" sessions with revision approaches to later extrapolate to other draft work.
