    It went too fast and I couldn't figure out when things were due. I missed everything. I guess I'm not too savvy. But I am disappointed that I didn't get to revise my pitch. Don't know if I'll take another class here.

    I am grateful for the way the class was given a very specific timeline for posting homework and getting feedback. It made it easy to schedule a visit to the website into my writing day. I was also very grateful for the feedback -- both from other participants and the instructor. Thank you.

    It would be nice if the moderators could encourage the participants to leave opinions in the areas of other participants. And to set up a flexible timeframe as to what to do and when.

    Ex. Days 1 - 2: Work on initial pitch.Post initial pitch. Read and comment on other pitches.
    Day 3 - 4: Review comments and redo initial pitch. Post revised pitch. Comment on other pitches.
    Day 5... Continue to comment on other pitches and revise own pitch if necessary.

    I noticed there seemed to be a good number of newer Savvy members. General instructions are a good idea in any case. Take care, Barbara

      Thanks Barbara! We always appreciate your thoughtful feedback. RJ, Kerri , and I will be updating the instructions to make them more clear. :)

    As a "newbie" I spent most of the session trying to figure how the system worked. Learning by doing when you are paying for the experience is frustrating. You miss most of the valuable input and the other participants miss your input. Something before the session begins outlining the ground rules would have been appreciated and expected. I see from some of the other threads that I was not alone in this concern

      Hi Leigh. Thanks for the feedback, we'll definitely add more instructions on how the event worked for the next event. Any specifics would be greatly appreciated! ~ Leslie

    I enjoyed the feedback, it was very helpful to me. I liked reading some of the commentary on the other submissions because that was insightful. What confused me is that it wasn't clear to me at first who the "teacher" was. I don't mind getting feedback from other experienced writers, but as a newbie it was confusing when I got other commentary and I wasn't sure at first if I was meant to revise my pitch based on that commentary. Thanks!

      Hi Wendy. Thanks for the feedback! It sounds like from both yours and Leigh's comments we could have done a better job of explaining how it all works. Point taken and we will do better next time! ~Leslie
