What Makes a Good Workshop Citizen?

Fiction writer and essayist Eson Kim put together this podcast discussing the components of a successful creative writing workshop, and what it means to be a good workshop citizen both from the teacher and student side of the equation.

Instructors from GrubStreet, including myself, contributed to this important and insightful discussion about what it means to be a good workshop citizen, among other relevant topics. Anyone who has taken or is planning to take a creative writing class should give it a listen.
