One of the key learning and teaching strategies in Creative Writing is informal peer appraisal. Apart from the many good reasons for engaging in peer appraisal, which will follow in a moment, this is a useful stepping-stone to workshopping, which can be daunting in the early stages of learning your craft. To spell it out, what I mean by peer appraisal is asking a small group of your friends or fellow students to read a draft of your work in progress and give you feedback on it. This feedback is only in the form of comments (which, coming from fellow writers, will be informed comments); peer appraisal does not mean peer assessment.
