Reactions to the publishers on Thursday

Posted by on Mar 1, 2014 in Workshop videos | 2 comments

It’s Saturday and we’re in the home stretch. This afternoon the auditors will each present a song to get feedback from the group. Everyone has been listening to the publishers pick apart songs, so now it’s their chance to apply some of what they’ve learned as they analyze the auditors’ songs.


I know everyone is probably more interested in hearing what the publishers have to say than in what the writers have to say about it, but that is a much bigger editing job, so it will take a day or two to get some video of that online. In the meantime, here is how some writers reacted to the publisher critiques the first day.



  1. Awesome! It isn’t exactly “pleasant” having the top pros critique my work, but it is valuable beyond measure to find out not just where I’m missing the mark, but where I’m on the right track. Honest evaluation mixed with constructive guidance is tough to come by, and how Barbara consistently puts together such a remarkably informative-yet-laid-back experience is beyond me…I’m just glad she keeps doing it! Thanks so much, Barbara!

  2. Loved the Workshop! I got so much out of it and enjoyed every minute. The best part was interaction with the other writers. I am sure there will be a lot of co-writes with the other attendees and I am really looking forward to it. Thanks Barbara!
