Requesting Feedback (2)

Julia Cameron, among other words of wisdom on getting feedback, says: "It is absolutely fair, in giving over a piece of work to be read, to make the proviso: 'I want you to tell me what you liked, tell me what you'd like to see more of. Please be specific.'" (The Right to Write, p. 179)

It may be politic to slightly alter the words with which you request feedback from a professor, but the spirit is correct.
