Members $45/Nonmembers $55
Do you find yourself at a loss when revising your fiction, spending hours moving commas around while the larger edits evade you? Revising your writing can be an intimidating, overwhelming experience, but it doesn’t have to be. In this class, you’ll learn tools and techniques to help you analyze your work, to see the big picture as well as all the intricate moving parts, and to then revise it to a final, polished draft. Bring a draft of a story or a novel excerpt that you’d like to work on in class.
