This workshop utilizes the Critical Response Process, an anti-oppressive feedback strategy that focuses on the reader receiving the feedback that is most useful to the story. We will workshop one story per class with each student having one entire session devoted to their story. Before a student's workshop, they will have a conference with the instructor to collaboratively determine what craft aspect will be the focus of the class discussion alongside their story. Limited to ten students.
