Exercise: Choose from one of the past workshop exercises and follow the instructions precisely, including word count. Give our readers a brief description of the exercise you're working on, and copy and paste the Web address of that exercise into your submission.

Many of the past free-for-all exercises have allowed members to alter the requirements of the exercise they choose, or to make up an exercise for themselves. The rule this time is more strict--pick an exercise that's been posted and do it as if it were this week's exercise for the whole group. In other words, meet the requirements for the exercise you choose, whatever they may be.

A list of exercises by topic is available on the IWW website:

http://www.internetwritingworkshop.org/pwarchive/topics.shtml

You can give your readers the location of the exercise you do by copying the address from the browser bar at the top of the exercise page.

Critiquing suggestions:

Has the writer met the requirements of the chosen exercise? If so, point out areas that support this. If not, why not? Offer suggestions as to how the exercise requirements could be met, perhaps a bit of tweaking here,a bit of additional material there.

These exercises were written by IWW members and administrators to provide structured practice opportunities for its members. You are welcome to use them for practice as well. Please mention that you found them at the Internet Writing Workshop.
