The Art of Critiquing

It’s been said that everyone’s a critic but in writing, critical analysis takes on a whole different meaning. In this course, learn the basics of critiquing yourself and your peers in any genre. Critiquing is a vital part of evaluating one’s writing while on the path to publication. In this hands-on course, learn techniques on how to be critical but not harsh by understanding genre, writing basics and diversity of voice such as Indigenous and people of color. Multi-published author Carol MacLeod, writing as Lynn Crain, has participated in critique groups throughout her 40+ years in publishing, including ones she’s started, as she learned to go from idea to finished product. Students will understand the basics of critiquing for themselves and others through the act of critiquing. They will also learn graceful tactics when dealing with authors outside their own genre and ethnicity. This six hour Continuing Education course fulfills .6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) which will be awarded via digital badge and PDF certificate.

Carol MacLeod is the author of over 25 short stories, novellas and novels. Through her promotion plans she has become a bestselling author for her publisher, an Amazon bestselling author and an award-winning author. She is an IAIA alumna of the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing.
