Teacher Becomes a Student – November 17, 2018

Patricia and Eleanor Matthews laughing it up at Nobody’s Perfect: Critical Collaboration and Creative Revision

It’s fun when the teacher becomes the student as I did Saturday, November 17, 2018, at the editing workshop, Nobody’s Perfect: Critical Collaboration and Creative Revision, taught by Eleanor Matthews, writer-in-resident at the Jack Kerouac House in College Park, Orlando.

We reviewed good editing practices and then had a chance to share our work with a partner and edit based on feedback received. No matter how long I’ve been writing, it’s still a bit scary to be critiqued by another writer. Thanks, Nylda Dieppa for your great insight and for being such a wonderful partner.

We were small but mighty at the Winter Park Library as we discussed the ten questions I’m most often asked by prospective life-story writers. What a great way to celebrate National Life Story Writing Month.

“The only way to do this wrong is to not do it at all!”




Thanks, Michael, Nicole, Angela, and Alice for a lively workshop filled with great stories. Remember, the only way to do this wrong is to not do it at all. Happy writing!

Nicole and Angela
