Day Three “Next Step” Sessions: THURSDAY, JUNE 24

During these sessions, students will share their work with our instructors to receive a critique of their work and make goals for “next steps.” Those next steps might be the next book to read, the next skill to practice or the next challenge for your staff. The “next step” session could be:

  • an individual portfolio review
  • a staff looking to redesign their publication
  • an editor looking for feedback on a past year’s publication in preparation for the coming year
  • another kind of individual or small group coaching

“Next Step” Sessions last 20 minutes via Zoom.
