Most writers agree that revision is where most of their serious work takes place. The class will advocate for a radical approach to revision and focus on a variety of revision strategies. We will look at how to redirect a weak early draft and send it in the direction of becoming a good story. The class will include a handout that covers 15 revision strategies.
Date: Sat., March 8 | 10-1pm
