A few thoughts on Feedback in creative writing

Feedback is

A two way conversation
A chance to explore and develop ideas
The provider of the feedback should ideally be a facilitator
enabling the recipient to see other ways of doing things.
Feedback is pointing in a direction
but not taking over the wheel.
Feedback is about building confidence.

Feedback is not

Scoring points or showing off.
Knocking down to make someone stronger
(it doesn’t really work- I know)
It is not about using language
that is inaccessible or overly technical.

I’d be pleased to hear any other thoughts.
Thank you
