So you’ve drafted a short story, a piece of flash fiction, or another chapter of your future best-selling novel . . . what next? How do we revisit our fiction, assess it honestly and generously, and see it anew? Revision is the short answer, but for many of us the actual revision process is much more daunting. Even those of us who thrill at revision could use new tools to make that process as rewarding and challenging as creating a fictional world.

In this workshop, we’ll focus on the revision process and on reworking fiction you’ve already crafted. Our goal is to go much deeper than editing and proofreading. We want to access the heart of the story, rediscover what drew us to it, and make changes that surprise us and enrich what is already there. The workshop we’ll play with fun exercises, examine different revision strategies, and take a close look at the revision stages of published works. We’ll also devote time to providing one another feedback. This is a workshop for anyone who wishes to see their work in a new way and build a revision toolkit.

This workshop is open to all genres of fiction.
