You Want Me to Change THAT? How to Give AND Receive Constructive Feedback
Criticism is an inevitable part of publishing, but it doesn’t have to tear you apart. In this workshop, Developmental Editor Katie McCoach will discuss how to process criticism and truly embrace it, and even when to ignore it. She’ll also talk about how you can provide valuable feedback to others, and why doing so will not only help others, but will also aid in your growth as a writer.
Katie McCoach in her own words:
“I am originally from the East coast, so I have a great appreciation for changing seasons and cold weather…which is exactly why I now live in Los Angeles. 🙂 I cannot resist a day full of sunlight! However, I do at times miss autumn, the smell of an entire neighborhood with lit fireplaces, and cracking open Old Bay covered blue crabs in the summertime. As you can imagine I love a good book (YA/NA and romance are my go-to’s). I am a member of Romance Writers of America, Contemporary Romance Writers, and LARA. I have participated as a judge for the 2015-2017 Golden Heart Awards, as well as the 2014 and 2017 Stiletto Contest. Most recently, I’ve participated as a featured editor in the RevPit annual contest. And sometimes you can catch me at a speaking event. I love connecting with book lovers alike, so don’t hesitate to reach out.”
