  • Prof Hergenrader will not be provided detailed critiques on your stories. However, I encourage participants to critique each other's fiction. If you write a story, provide a critique; if someone gives you a critique, give one in return.
  • See the Fiction page to read vignettes written by the 543 students. You are very much encouraged to share your thoughts using the Discussion feature of each page. I'm sure these writers would love any feedback!
