Critiquing an Amazing Story by a Classmate and Helping Other Classmates at Hagley Writers’ Institute: 12 June 2021

Writing class went well today.

One of my classmates seemed out of sorts, so I spoke with her after class and she’s having serious issues with her brother (whom she lives with); she had her work critiqued today, which probably didn’t help her outlook.

Another classmate shared a really amazing work which made all of us cry when we read it and even led to a few tears in the classroom too.

Another student in another class who I’m very fond of also is having personal issues, some of his classmates told me, but I didn’t get the chance or time to talk to him.

All in all, a very emotional but good session at class.
