WriterTake advantage of the other writers around you, both instructors and fellow students. Show them your work. Ask questions: What's working in this story? What's not working? - and listen to what they have to say with an open mind. Read their work and offer constructive criticism with an open heart. It's not about competition, but camaraderie.
