Workshop, Wed, 4/26, and Fri, 4/28


Read and respond to your R4s, 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 two or three pieces today, and the remaining pieces on Friday. And then on Friday, you will need to compose a meaningfully detailed . . .

Revising Memo

By Friday, 4/28, at 5:00 PM, send me a post-workshop email. You and I will also have a conference at the end of next week (Thurs, 5/04, or Fri, 5/05), so you may find it more useful to think of this as a pre-conference email. What kind of feedback can I offer you that will help you finish the semester with your best writing for the course?

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.)
