Deglazing Our Prose
Genres: Fiction, Nonfiction
Open to all levels
"Deglazing" is using an acid to dilute sediment from fats left in a pan to make a gravy or sauce. Sometimes we've worked on something too long or can't figure out what the piece wants to be. The process involves pairing down the writing to its fatty sediment––a poetic essence––and beginning to add wine and stir. We use that new sauce as our guide. This can be revision, salvage, or renewal. Bring writing that feels lifeless or overworked.
