    Default Grader Wages 3/7 - 5/2

    Hey guys! Really late Wages, but we are gonna get em done!

    TOTAL: $13,550


    Overall, you’re grades are awesome! I really can’t complain. You do a great job of looking at the realism and consistency within stories. Something for future grades I’d say for you to work on is to try and find a way to give the writer advice outside of the story, feedback that they can carry onward and into their next stories. For example, you mention that you like how a writer does this one technique very well in their stories, but the issues and criticisms are very much tied to the story. While this is how it should be on a surface level, I’d love to see discussion on the stories flaws, and or a strong point, and discussing these as overall writing techniques rather than specific to the story’s plot. (PM me if you have questions, I suck at explanations haha.) And sometimes of course it isn’t possible, But I definitely think there’s some room for you to go even further beyond!

    “While we do ask graders not to focus too much on grammar, bear in mind that it's okay to bring up repeated mistakes. They usually merit some thought into *why* the author made that mistake many times. One tip I like to give out for folks who make frequent typos (such as forgetting a word) is that they should try reading their story aloud to themselves as part of the proof-reading process.”


    The Curse of Knowing WWC
    Strong Basic - 3,840 + 3,000 (WWC)




    “I think Strong Basic is right for The Curse of Knowing. I hovered between Basic and Moderate but erred lower because there wasn't much feedback on things Mikey could improve! A Moderate grade is supposed to "point out the most relevant and important issues for the writer to work on," but I didn't really get a sense of what you felt Mikey could work on.”

    Strong Basic - 3,000


    “You definitely did a better job of pointing out things Felly could work on, but I think you yourself could work on elaborating and doing a closer reading of the text


    For example, you briefly touched on how Felly talks about Komalas not being treated well. I think you could have elaborated on how it's important to the story. Is it meeting that purpose, or could it be done better? Although this was a piece of positive feedback, taking more time to think about *why* you liked it will help you to come up with more ideas for how something could be improved.


    In cases like this, if you think you can identify a specific purpose that the author had in choosing themes or diction, you can help the author understand *how* their writing served their purpose, and offer suggestions for other ways to do so in the future”
