What It’s About

Back by popular demand following the fall conference! The number one trait that all successful writers possess is tenacity, that sheer determination to hold on and keep fighting, no matter what. And yet, as writers, we do very little to increase the odds that we will be able to hang on.

Many of us even struggle at the first hint of feedback, taking things personally, over-explaining our choices, or simply giving up altogether. When it comes to delivering feedback, we often aren’t that much better. We land somewhere between offending our fellow writers and outright lying to them just to make them happy.

So how do we unravel the twisted muddle that is feedback? Celebrated author, illustrator, and child psychologist, Carol Baicker-Mckee, and award-winning YA author and former employee development consultant, Stephanie Keyes, lead you through an interactive and eye-opening webinar on giving and receiving feedback.

They’ll cover how to prepare for a feedback session, your behavior in the moment, and deciding how to handle the feedback afterwards. This course is perfect for pros and newbs alike.
