The Gentle Art of Feedback

The meeting on 31st January took the form of a workshop session on constructive criticism.

Committee members bravely submitted fiction, non-fiction and poetry for the Group to consider. These pieces were deliberately unpolished and led to some lively ‘gloves off’ discussions.

It is hoped that this will encourage everyone to speak out at future Open Manuscript sessions, especially when the member reading is keen to submit the piece for publication.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight at the St Wilfred's Community Centre on Trinity Lane and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
