S03E36 - Not a happy bunny

This week’s Write for Your Life podcast sees Iain and Donna talk briefly about the disaster that was their first attempt at ‘recording’, but swiftly move on to cover the former’s hosting of a fiction slam event in Sheffield. More specifically, negative feedback, how we writers should handle it, and why context and discussion is important. Feedback is part of the job, but rarely straightforward to implement.
