Alone in a Room with Invisible People is a podcast focusing on topics related to writing, revising and publishing fiction.
In this episode, host Rebecca Galardo discusses the topic of Good Critiquing VS Bad or Destructive Criticism with Author and Teacher Holly Lisle. They cover what Destructive Criticism is – and how to spot it – what good critiquing is – and how to do it – and share some of their horror stories and insights.
They take a look at the following:
- What Destructive Criticism is, why you get it, why it hurts, how to spot it and what to do when you get it.
- What Good Crits are, how to know if the criticism is good, right, wrong or just not what you’re looking for.
- How to help your people help you and your work
- And more.
