Some logistics:

  • 6 writers for each 6-session series (small group means deeper, more focused comments)
  • Meet in a real-time Google Hangout one week after upload date
  • One week prior to each Hangout, participants share a Googledoc of their work (2,500 words max) so others can post comments before we “meet” in the Hangout
  • Allot approximately 15-20 minutes to commenting on each piece prior to our Hangout time.
  • Attendance at the real-time Hangouts is mandatory (with dispensation for one absence per session if absolutely necessary). It is important for written/verbal feedback to be even and equitable. No fair taking written feedback and not providing conversation on others’ pieces.
  • The verbal portion/real-time Hangout will be topic driven. (I will suggest aspects of craft for deeper exploration.)  When we have finished discussing the piece, the writer will have a few minutes to ask follow-up questions or make a comment.

*Prerequisite: Previous participation in our face-to-face Roundtables OR the equivalent. (If you have never been in a Roundtable or workshop group, please contact Kim Suhr 414.881.7276 or kim@redoakwriting.com to discuss your experience with giving and receiving critique.)

Technology Requirements:

Gmail account and familiarity with Googledocs and Google Hangouts

Highspeed internet connection
