It’s Your Story: Owning the Joy of Revision
In this workshop, you will learn how to craft stronger, more intentional writing by saying what you mean from the sentence up. We’ll discuss the differences and similarities between “Macro Editing” and “Micro Editing” and will look at clear examples of each. Fun practice exercises will emphasize the main principles of the workshop, and you’ll leave with valuable new tools and the confidence to effectively revise your writing.

Requirements: You are asked to bring one typed, double-spaced page of something you are currently working on, as well as a notebook and writing implements. A practice page will be provided for those of you who don’t have a current writing project to work with. You will receive handouts with examples of revision techniques, inspiring quotes, and a short list of topnotch resources.
