What is workshopping?

It is reading someone else’s work while it is still in the early stages or near publication, telling the author what you think works and what you think could make the piece better. You also tell them what does work, and perhaps give some reading suggestions to have a look at.

I am offering these services to writers. You can expect to receive detailed and helpful criticism on your work. I will provide suggestions on how to prove your piece, highlight what works, and suggest books I think may help or inspire your piece. I am not a proofreader or editor, so while I may point to obvious grammar mistakes, I will not change any of your work for you.

This leaves you to reflect on the suggestions given and choose whether to listen to the advice fully, partially or not at all.
