Feedback vs. A Pat on the Back

Criticism is encouragement.

Sure, a “good job” feels good, but what do you do afterward?
After that warm fuzzy feeling wears off you have the exact same piece of work you had before.
No changes, no improvement.

Becoming a better writer requires accepting you aren’t one yet.
The point of feedback isn’t to stroke your ego, and it’s not to discourage you. It’s valuable insight that should inspire you to go home and write some more.

At CCC’s monthly writers’ workshops we’re interested in people who are interested in becoming better writers. Submit your work to workshops@ohiowriters.org and join us the evening of 04/24 for an honest, friendly, peer review session with other writers.

Thinking about submitting something for the Best of Ohio Anthology? This can be a great opportunity to get some feedback before the deadline (June 24th).

You do NOT have to be a member to attend or participate. All work must be submitted by midnight of 04/17. You must be present to receive feedback, so please only submit work if you know you’ll be able to make it on 04/24. Log in to your free CCC account (or create one here) for details on time and place.

Here’s to rewriting, rewriting, and rewriting.

Hope to see you soon!

03/27 Workshop Reminder

As writers, we often get so busy being the first editors, readers, and critics of our work, that we forget the importance of showing it to anyone else.

So go ahead, hoarsely read that piece out loud, delete and retype that sentence again, and stare at it until the page blurs.

When you’re through, get it out of that word processor and under a fresh pair of eyes at CCC’s monthly writers’ workshop.

Join us on March 27th to get some inspiration, or to provide some, in an honest, friendly, peer-review session with other writers. You do NOT have to be a member to attend, submit work, or participate.

Please submit your work to workshops@ohiowriters.org before midnight of 03/20. You must be present to receive feedback, so please only submit work if you know you’ll be there on 03/27. Log in to your free CCC account (or create one here) for details on time and place.

Questions? Contact us, or check out our Workshop FAQ.

Here’s to good ideas and hard work!

Hope to see you there!

Hello Creatives,

Ever get tired of only receiving feedback from people who are a bit biased? (Your mom, cat, significant other, yourself…etc.). No matter how appreciated this sort of feedback may be, an outside look at your work can be invaluable.

On March 27th get a fresh perspective, or provide one, at CCC’s monthly writers’ workshop.  Join us the evening of 03/27 in an honest, friendly, peer-review session with other writers. You do NOT have to be a member to attend or participate.

Please submit your work to workshops@ohiowriters.org before midnight of 03/20. You must be present to receive feedback, so please only submit work if you know you’ll be there on 03/27. Log in to your free CCC account (or create one here) for details on time and place.

Questions? Contact us, or check out our Workshop FAQ.

Here’s to productivity!

Hope to see you there!

Workshops have resumed!

As promised, writer’s workshops will be starting back up on the last Wednesday of this month, March 27th. All are invited to attend and submit work for peer-review by fellow writers.

Whether it’s something you’re currently working on, or something you haven’t dared to look at in a while, be sure to send it to workshops@ohiowriters.org no later than midnight, 03/20. You have to be there if you want the feedback, so please only submit work for peer review if you’re sure you’ll be able to join us on 03/27.

You do NOT have to be a member of CCC to submit work, participate, or attend.  Log in to your free CCC account for more details on time and place. Please contact us with any questions or visit our Workshop FAQ.

Hope to see you on the 27th!
