and being polite in order to create and maintain good working relationships
with writers. Writing tutors and editors must mitigate criticismwith politeness
in order to construct and maintain relationships that work and benefit
everyone involved. In this talk, Mackiewicz examines some frustrations
and fears that writers bring to interactions about their writing emotions
that can greatly affect the extent to which good working relationships
will be constructed and maintained. This is a presentation of research
supported by a McKnight Fellowship and Faculty Summer Research Grant.
