Ah, peer review, everyone’s favorite activity to hate. No but really, I kind of like peer reviews. And the peer reviews we had for the Reader’s Guide definitely helped me out a lot during the writing process. Peer review helped me stay on track and make sure my work was on par with what other people in the class were turning in. I also just really appreciated hearing peoples feedback on my work, both positive and negative. It’s always helpful to have a fresh pair of eyes take a look at something you’ve been staring at for eons, especially if that something is on a screen. I don’t think my Reader’s Guide would be nearly as coherent as it is without the help of my classmates giving it a good old fashioned once over. Peer reviewing really gets a bad rap. You know what? I’m not afraid to say it. I like peer reviews. And there you have it!
