The Joy of…Revision!?

Weeklong June 17 to June 22 2018

All writers revise, but it’s not always easy. In this workshop, we will explore a range of approaches to revision. Through writing exercises and workshops, you will write and re-write the same story or essay in a variety of ways. The exercises are designed to give you fresh perspectives on your work that will help you develop and deepen your original draft. These might include rewriting from a different character’s point-of-view or in a different tense or with a new structural device. This class is best for writers with some experience who are looking to generate and revise material.
