Workshopping is critical to good writing. This 3-week class focused on providing top-notch oral and written feedback in workshops will help students at all levels hone their workshopping skills. Participants will hear about workshop writers’ preferences and feedback best practices. The class includes a mock workshop with feedback about your oral and written contributions as well as an actual workshop after which the writer will share feedback about the effectiveness and helpfulness of the critiques received. This fun, no-pressure environment to fine-tune your feedback skills will help you get and give the most when participating in writing workshops.

Kristie Smeltzer’s writing has appeared in So to Speak, The Florida Review, Eclectica Magazine, and the Apeiron Review. Her story, “Bridges,” was a runner-up Phoebe: A Journal of Literature and Art’s 2006 Fiction Contest. Her story, “The Fine Art of Goldfish,” received an honorable mention in the WrtierHouse/C-ville Weekly 2015 Fiction Contest and appears in Apeiron Review’s Issue 10. Kristie is currently working on a novel. She earned her MFA at the University of Central Florida.
