Brandon Sanderson – 318R – #12 (Q&A)

December 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

6:00 – 7:30:  Brandon Sanderson – 318R – #12 (Q&A)

In 2016, Brandon taught 318R, a class chock-full of outstanding writing advice.  We will be working through these videos one by one, taking notes followed by detailed discussion.  Fortunately for us, it was filmed and made available to the public by its copyright holder.

Tonight’s video covers many different topics:

  • Discouragement and writers block
  • Show versus tell
  • Publishers
  • Writing conventions
  • Self-assessment i.e. “how do you know if you’re any good?”
  • Handling mixed feedback
  • Reading as a key activity of writing and how much time one should spend
  • The LTUE publishers, what they are, and whether they’re right for you
  • Student feedback – how they might do things differently
  • Finding a great writing group

7:30 – 9:00:  Tre Critique

Tre Critique is  three-member team approach to more dynamic and informative critiques of our work.  By both giving and receiving two critiques each week, the quality of your writing will improve at a rapid pace and reach high quality in the shortest possible time.  Variations resulting from uneven groups include two and four members in a critique group.

Please review this link for details.

See you there!
