Meet Guest Bloggers Janet Muirhead Hill and Nancy Connally who visit Riehlife while Janet travels to New Mexico to read at the Sunflower Poetry Workshop and Poets & Writers Picnic
While I'm away in New Mexico, I'm leaving you in the capable hands of two sister members of Women Writiing the West.
As a seasoned writer Janet Muirhead Hill is a good resource to give advice on how to use criticism and spring back from rejection. In the following days, she'll share:
Monday, August 20th (today)--Why writers are so sensitive to rejection.
Tuesday, August 21st --How to use criticism and spring back from rejection.
Wednesday, August 22nd--Categories of critics a writer meets
Thursday--How writers can--and must--separate our personhood from our work when receiving and using criticism.
Then, from Friday through Sunday, Nancy Connally takes over with a case study on several critiques she recently received and insights she gained throughout the process.
As a companion piece, you might like to read my essay on "The Art of Critique." --JGR
