PREVIEW: Revision Strategies Workshop w Patrick Dundon | Oct 22 - Nov 19

What do we do with a piece of writing that feels stuck, stagnant, that we want to transform? Revision can be difficult: we don’t want to lose the raw energy, the life-blood, of our original draft, yet sometimes we need to let go of our original ideas and inspiration in service of the poem or story. Too often revision is thought of as a process refinement and clarification, but revision literally means to “see again,” and in this class we’ll do just that: seeking out ways to enliven old drafts and see them from a fresh perspective, with a sense of curiosity and wonder. Through both in-class exercises and critique, we’ll explore a wide variety of revision strategies designed to bring our drafts to life again. Open to all writers. Maximum: 12 writers

[Note: This workshop is designed to be paired with Patrick's Generateive Exercises workshop in Session II. Writers are welcome to take both, or just one.]
