Revision Inspiration

When writers reach the wonderful, celebratory goal of completing a manuscript, they often look at the pile of pages and wonder “what next?” As you receive feedback, do you wonder which suggestions to take? Which to ignore? The process of figuring out how to improve the story can feel overwhelming. This session will give guidance for the revision process, using a “triage” approach to design an order of tasks. Easy, practical guidelines and checklists will be given for approaching changes both big and small in your work. We’ll also discuss how to find good, trusted readers, and the pros and cons of writing groups. NOTE: you do NOT have to have a completed manuscript to take or benefit from this class.
