New Article at Grub Street on Critiquing Manuscripts

grubstreet-logo

Grub Street has published my new article “How to Offer Constructive Feedback that Writers Will Love” at their blog! This piece discusses the importance of critiquing other writers’ works and suggests possible questions to ask yourself when reviewing / critiquing / beta-reading someone’s manuscript. It also offers advice on more “administrative” areas such as sticking to deadlines, communicating with the author, and balancing tact and honesty in your response. If you’re considering critiquing or beta-reading manuscripts or getting ready to have others read your work, this article can help you prepare for either experience.

And if you missed it previously, click here to read “Hello, My Name Is…: Using Journal-Writing for Character Development,” which Grub Street published in February.

Also, many thanks to Sara Litchfield for letting me beta-read her novel The Night Butterflies and for inspiring this article! Her story offers a unique twist on dystopian science fiction, and I’m really looking forward to seeing (and re-reading) the finished product once it’s out.

Coming Soon: Music Monday Reviews will return next week with my thoughts on Divided We Fall’s full-length debut CD Dreamcrusher.
