Longreads founder Mark Armstrong and I will be leading a one-hour writer’s workshop where we’ll be giving some tips and constructive criticism on how to improve your writing.
The two of us have spent several years editing writers with a wide range of experience, and here’s your chance to get some one-on-one time with us. Having a second pair of eyes on your work will help you become a better writer. No writer is perfect — the majority of your favorite writers have editors who make sure their copy is clean and that their work is structurally and narratively strong. We’ll do the same for you by looking at grammar, tone, style, introductions and endings, and how to write concisely and avoid meandering.
If you’re interested in attending this workshop, you’ll benefit the most by preparing some writing for us to look over and critique. Have a specific blog post ready for us to look at, or better yet, drop a post URL below in the comments section now so we can prepare some critiques in advance. We’ll also have a piece or two on hand to go over as examples if you’re more interested in observing.
Either way, we’re looking forward to seeing you and your work!

Kind of a how to but many of my articles are for this site. It will be great to get a critique. I know I’ve got a long way to go.
Also, let me know if I should dig up some other articles.
I would love for you to critique my post: Goat Cheese Fantasies which was posted on 7/10/14
Righteous! Great idea and looking forward to it. Pasting a post from today, still wet:
