How to write your assignment for group critiquing

When bringing completed exercises for critiquing at meetings on the second Saturday of each month, there are a couple of things we require:

1. Exercise to be 500 to 1000 words only.

2. Font to be Times New Roman or Arial for easier reading.

3. Line numbers be included in your work.

To insert line numbers in MS Word go to file, click page setup, then layout, click line numbers, then check the add line numbers box, then check continuous under the numbering heading. Lastly click OK

4. Please bring 6 photocopies of your work to be read by members individually.
(The same applies as above if you are bringing a piece of your work instead of the exercise.)

NOTE:
When there are 6 or more people at this meeting, it will be split into two groups.
