I’d like to change our procedure slightly for the final workshop.
Please read all of the writings by your group members and be ready to talk about them when your group meets. But rather than responding to four essays, I’d like you to concentrate your attention on one piece. Follow the same response format that we’ve used so far:
- A letter to author stating what the project is, what is working, and what needs more work
- A few marginal comments that point to specific moments where the author might do more work in revision.
- Use the Track Changes function to suggest specific, micro-level revisions to the author’s text (as many as you feel might be useful). That is, I’d like you to function not only as a reader but as an editor of the text.
I would then like the “editor” of each author’s draft—rather than the author—to direct discussion of her or his text in the workshop.
The editor/author pairs in each group are:
Andrew edits Grace
Grace edits Margrette
Margrette edits Zeewan
Zeewan edits Xan
Xan edits Andrew
Brea edits Lawson
Lawson edits Janet
Janet edits Rachel
Rachel edits Carol
Carol edits Brea
Lauren edits Erica
Erica edits Dayo
Dayo edits Eriks
Eriks edits Tim
Tim edits Lauren
