As a group we’ve provided feedback/suggestions to (nearly!) all of our young authors! They’ve been asked to use a different color pen to write notes to themselves on their first drafts about the changes they hope to make. Next, they will write (or type…but don’t forget to bring it back!) 2nd drafts that include these changes (things like more sensory details/dialogue, catching attention at the beginning, including the backstory etc.) Our next step will be to help each other out with the small stuff – editing!
