Having learned some of the benefits of giving feedback on the work of your fellow writers, and some techniques for doing so, now is the time to test those skills.

After finishing your final story, and giving and receiving feedback from fellow writers, you’ll have a chance to reflect on the main tools introduced during the course – those to do with creating characters, portraying characters, and turning characters into short stories. And you’ll reflect on how you used your reading, your notebook, and your powers of observation.

You’ll consider all of this – and where next to go with your writing.
