Hey there, workshoppers!

If you haven't already done so on Discord, make sure to message me if you want to be in May's workshop.

For everyone who is not yet a member, please visit TWSwriters.org to learn more.

For Writers

  • Be respectful to your fellow workshoppers by making sure your work is on time and ready for critique.

  • Format your work correctly so that it is easily read.

  • If you have questions about the feedback, simply respond to the comment and ask it.

  • If there is something you want particular attention paid to, leave us a note at the start of your submission.

  • If you’re giving us a scene that’s later in your novel, give us a brief summary.

  • If you want to respond to feedback, do so. We’re here to make work better.

  • Use your feedback, or don’t. The police won’t come knocking on your door if you decide something doesn’t fit.

For Workshoppers

  • Workshops are safe spaces. Don’t be rude.

  • We’re here to make the work better, don’t hold back when something doesn’t make sense.

  • If you have an idea of how something could be made clearer, offer it.

  • Respond to your fellow workshoppers if you agree or disagree with their feedback so the Writer has more to go off of.

  • Recognize the difference between a “bad story” and “poor execution.” If you feel something feels derivative, mention it and move on.

  • Try not to copyedit, unless this is asked for OR the line/piece would benefit greatly from it.
