Suggested topics for Readings Critiques
You are free to write whatever you like about the piece you
have volunteered to critique. If you
are stuck for a way to enter the topic, here are a few suggested questions, any
one or more of which might get you started.
was it about the piece that made it matter to you?
do you think mattered to the writer that caused her/him to write
“hooked” you and made you want to read on?
did the story (excerpt) make you feel?
were the fiction writing techniques that were strongest? Analyze them to see if you can figure
questions would you like to ask the writer?
- As you
read the work, was there any point at which you found yourself declaring
to yourself, words to the effect: I wish I could do that!’ If so what did
it for you?
