Driving In the Dark: A Novel Revision Workshop [Naomi Jackson]
Intermediate | You’ve finished a crummy first draft of your novel. Now what? In this workshop, students will map out a plan for making significant progress toward more polished drafts while giving and receiving constructive feedback. Craft talks will address issues in students’ drafts such as time, language, and tone, as well as practical issues such as how to create a sustainable schedule and maintain stamina for your long-term project. Students should be prepared to read and critique up to 75 pages per week.
