Editing, Revising, and Polishing Your Work (Advanced)
“Writing,” as the saying goes, “is revision.” This workshop will discuss many approaches to editing and revision, and how to engage with the revision process in a way that is as inspired as the initial, generative stages of your writing. We’ll look at before-and-after examples of radically revised published works. In-class exercises will be geared towards employing new editorial and revisionary devices for both micro and macro aspects of a work-in-progress. We will also discuss the process of working with editors at literary magazines and publishing houses.
