How to critique & be critiqued & what to do with feedback

Critiquing is about teaching and learning. Each member of the critique group must be both a teacher and a student. When you offer suggestions on someone’s work, you’re learning how to diagnose issues and improve your own work.

A successful critique group requires positive, helpful attitudes, and a willingness to help yourself through giving time and energy to help others. Critiquing should empower members with a sense of collective and individual progress.

Critiquing should never, ever be about showing off how much you know, or intentionally, maliciously making someone feel bad.
