This is an important stage because it allows you to get feedback on your writing. What is working well in your piece? What parts are unclear or need more detail? A writing group or a response partner can help you to see your work more clearly and can offer you insights into what you need to do for revision.
You might share with a writing group or have a peer respond via a response form or by writing questions directly on your paper. You might read your piece out loud and ask your responder to listen for the overall impression of your paper. There isn't just one way to share; however, in order to get the most valuable information from responders, you might consider telling them what you are trying to achieve with a given piece of writing.
