We're welcoming back our first Publishing Fellow Manuela Moser for this workshop on critical review writing (for students only).
Manuela Moser is back with us to talk through her approach as editor of the Friday Critique series. We'll discuss tone, structure and the aims of the series, and how to balance rigourous critical engagement with brevity in these short-form reviews. Manuela will be joined by reviewers and editors Elizabeth McIntosh, Rose Winter and Dara McWade. Dara will introduce the new film review series The Saturday Matinee.
All students are encouraged to participate in these review series'. Open to SHC students only.
