I would like to submit a desert choice to add to this information on The YWS Critique Sandwich. I present... The YWS'more. The Sandwich will always be a great tool for the ages, but sometimes it's fun to mix it up a bit!

First, the Graham Cracker -> Give an interpretation with your overall impressions.

Second, we have the Toasted, but Slightly Burned Marshmallow -> Share criticism or where there is room for improvement. (ie. don't scorch this side quite so much next time!)

Next we have the delicious, cheery, joyful section - many people's favorite - The Melty Hershey's Chocolate Bar -> Compliments and praise! Share what you loved about the work, and what made it shine!

And lastly, Graham Cracker -> This is where the s'more ends - it features maybe a cute Sign-off and signature Review Banner, this definitely shouldn't be the bulk of the review since the Graham Crackers aren't really the highlight of the s'more but they do hold all the goodness together!


Here's a Review Template if you need some help getting started! (Replace the text in the parenthesis with your own words)

Code: Select all

The bigger the issue, the smaller you write. Remember that. You don’t write about the horrors of war. No. You write about a kid’s burnt socks lying on the road. You pick the smallest manageable part of the big thing, and you work off the resonance.
