noun : a reaction or response to a particular process or activity.
Anyone who has explored the creative process understands the value of feedback. Exposing our “works in progress” to the critique of our peers takes courage but also a commitment to producing the best art we can create. Feedback can take our creative endeavors from average to excellent. Art House Dallas wants to provide an encouraging environment within a small group setting to explore your strengths and potential areas of growth as an artist.
Registration details are provided below. Please plan on reading submitted works before coming to Feedback for Writers. In order to be prepared, work from each writer in your assigned group will be sent to you beforehand.
Date: Tuesday, January 19th
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Online via Zoom
REQUIRED: Registering for this event assumes your commitment to read four writings of five pages or less prior to the event (no more than 20 pages total). They will be emailed to you before Feedback for Writers. Once registered, please send a copy of your piece to [email protected] one week prior to the gathering, at the latest. If your writing exceeds 5 pages you may send a paragraph summary instead.
Critique Procedure & Guidelines
We will provide questions that each critique should be based on. A member of the group will read the work aloud while others evaluate as they follow along.
Manuscripts should be five pages or less, double-spaced, 12-point font, one-inch margins, header or footer with author name and page numbers. Bring enough copies for each person to have his/her own copy.
Members add handwritten editorial comments on the manuscript and ask questions, point out difficulties, as well as offer suggestions. They may write a summary comment at the end and sign their name.
