Fantastic opportunity today to have my work critiqued by 8 colleagues at IFWA’s Poor Man’s Workshop. It is a modified Clarion-style with the work submitted in advance and 2 full oral critiques and then a 40-minute discussion by all the contributors, with written critiques from everyone. I was affirmed for most of my story, which is always gratifying, but the discussion generated tons of ideas about where I could take my world further, which was exactly what I was looking for. Some fantastic stories on the table, too–a joy to critique.
And, there was lunch!
