Book reviews are a critical part of the reading ecosystem, guiding readers to books they will like and identifying connections and trends in the publishing industry. At best, they can be literary works in their own right, bringing to light important themes and inspiring other writers in their own work.

In this interactive workshop, Mohamed Al Marzooqi will teach participants the techniques that make for an impactful and memorable review. Whether you are an aspiring literature columnist, an enthusiastic book blogger or just looking to improve the quality of your Amazon and Goodreads reviews, this workshop will teach you something to help you improve your craft.
