Everyone’s a critic – especially in show business. As a writer, It can be easy to get bogged down in readers’ notes, but feedback is an essential part of improving your writing. If you’re only looking for praise, you’ll miss opportunities to improve your craft. Join panelists for an honest conversation on how to make criticism constructive, what to make of your notes, and how to keep moving forward.
