The 2017 online writing exchange was really fun because it really helped me become a better and stronger writer. This exchange helped me explain my ideas in greater detail and organize them. It also helped me get better grades because another set of eyes were looking at my writing. The feedback that was most helpful was about adding more detail/ describing things better and adding figurative language into my writing. I really liked how I got to meet my college student in person so then I got to know her better and felt more comfortable with her seeing my writing. I also really liked how my college student didn’t just criticize me. She would tell me things I should fix and then she would tell me things that I did really well.
There are a few things that would make the the online writing exchange better would be that if we misspell a word, then our mentor will tell us or if we need punctuation in the correct spot. Another thing is that I would like if our college student would answer all of our questions in the author’s note. Overall, the 2017 online writing exchange was really fun and it helped me grow as a writer!
