Read and respond to your R2s, following the script we have established. If your piece is 1600 words or longer, choose a 1000-word section you’d like to discuss. Otherwise, read your whole piece.Keep track of time; you’ll need to discuss three pieces today. On Friday, you’ll have time to discuss the other two pieces, and then . . .
By Friday, 3/10, at 5:00 PM, send me a post-workshop email. Remind me what your piece is about. What did your readers have to say about it ? What are your plans for it now? Will you continue working on this piece, or set it aside? If you do plan to keep working on it, what changes or additions are you considering? How can I help? Take advantage of this chance to get my feedback on the piece you are trying to develop. (This memo, along with your comments on your group members’ pieces, will count as your workshop grade.)
