Fremantle Press's Georgia Richter has put together a downloadable guide on how best to give feedback to fellow writers.
As Fremantle Press says, 'At their best, writing groups and workshops can be positive experiences that transform the largely solitary act of writing into a shared endeavour with like-minded people. They can give authors the opportunity to network with peers and to glean those vital first-reader impressions and opinions. But sometimes sharing your work with an audience for the first time can be a challenging experience. Developing a sense of trust amongst fellow writers is essential, so, in the spirit of 'do unto others’, it helps to give some thought to how best to critique one another's work.'
