How to Be a Good Critique Partner for Another Writer
from The Writer
Thinking critically and deeply about another writer’s work-in-progress and articulating feedback not only benefits the other writer — it also develops your revision skills and helps you better understand your own writing process. Whether you do a manuscript swap or agree to read someone else’s work without reciprocation, it can be a win-win experience. But critique-partner relationships involve real vulnerability on the part of both the writer whose draft is to be dissected and the person wielding the scalpel.
