Feedback is Not a Review

  • Whether a writer needs a critique partner or a beta reader, they are a trusted person within a writer’s circle.
  • They speak directly to a writer where a review speaks to other readers.  
  • They should treat a writer’s work with respect.  Acknowledge wins and suggest correction when pointing out areas to improve.
  • If one can’t provide constructive criticism, it’s appropriate to thank a writer but explain the manuscript isn’t for you.  No further explanation is required.
