Write Better with Critical Friends is presented as a succinct guide to connecting with both inner critical friend and external critical friends. We discuss what a critical friend is and what a critical friend isn’t and we explore how to give and recieve feedback. One of the biggest blocks to improving our writing skills is the fear of feedback. My learning how to give feedback and how to receive it, we can stop fearing it and begin to embrace the lessons. There is nothing to learn in what we are already doing well, so feedback is not to be feared.
