Critiques and revisions:
We will go at critiques using criteria that seem appropriate to the story. Afterward, I will often write to the author with my thoughts on the discussion. Please feel free to share that email to the listserv, and please respond as you revise, with thoughts, questions, ideas. From now on, we will enter a gentle game of tennis. Or you can stop in during office hours, Friday, 2-4pm, or during the easier-going Study Hall, Tuesdays, 3-6pm.
Please sign up for the Doodle I've sent to the listserve for individual consults next week, Tuesday through Friday.
We will go to St. James on 4/19, with driving help from Sadeghi, to arrive at 2:30 to meet with the 7th graders and read to them your revised, super-short puppet stories. Bring puppets.
Then, we'd like to meet with the 6th graders to read to them stories that are a little longer, and vary from picture books for little kids to YA.
