When: Mon., Aug. 9, 6-8:30 p.m. and Mon., Aug. 16, 6-8:30 p.m.
This online workshop is designed to empower writers with revision techniques to apply to memoir, essays, flash, short stories, or novels. Whether trying to revise a stand-alone chapter or considering the broader arc of your full manuscript, these techniques are graspable, effective, and empowering. We’ll cover thematic and developmental revision, sentence-level revision, and structural revision. You’ll practice each technique using excerpts from your own work in progress, which you should bring with you to class. You’ll come away with systematic tools to address areas for improvement, as well as a reinvigorated understanding of the joys of revision.
