Revision isn’t just work but a chance to
re-envision your work, says Natalie Goldberg of Writing Down the Bones.
Whether you’re a fiction or nonfiction
writer, an emerging established talent, this interactive seminar and
mini-workshop will explore how to find and fix imprecise prose, concepts, characters
We’ll also draw from Janet Burroway on details and Robert Olen
Butler on creating story to bring your work closer to your mind’s picture. Writers
will receive fiction and nonfiction checklists and a bibliography.
To make the
most of the time, bring your current or planned project, a 50-word description
of the same and one example of where your concept or work is vague.
