Revision Strategies for Novels and Memoirs


You’ve written the first draft of a novel or memoir and you’re ready to start shaping and polishing it through the revision and editing processes. Through discussion, examples, and writing exercises, we’ll focus on revision versus editing, revision stages, and techniques to revise plot and structure, scene, characterization/narrative voice, setting, opening chapters, opening lines, and titles. 

This workshop is designed for writers at any skill level. While a working first draft is a plus for this workshop, it’s not a requirement and the workshop will be beneficial whatever stage your project is in. All genres are welcome.
