Revision Workshop for Fiction and Memoir: Exploring prose

Sep 17, Oct 15, Nov 19, Dec 10, Jan 14, Feb 11, Mar 11, Apr 8, May 13, and June 10

In this intimate workshop, the goal is to revise your first draft by pushing further to the next level, strengthening your writing skills, and simultaneously exploring meaning in your writing. This workshop is deadline- and goal-oriented to complete the next draft of a project for publication.  You will get professional feedback for developing the heart of the subject as well as the structure and organization of your project. Learn techniques to creatively unearth what really matters so that your writing stands out as surprising and original to an editor.  Expect readings and deadlines to keep you accountable and move your writing forward. We will meet on Zoom 5-8 pm. $240 for four months.
