Vision and Revision [Justin Taylor]
The schedule for this class has changed from the catalog. Accurate information below.
In this revision-focused workshop we are interested in everything that happens after the first draft. We will engage questions great (point of view, structure, endings, etc.) and small (sentence mechanics, line editing, etc.), with an eye toward becoming stronger writers and critical readers. Each student will submit a story (5-20 pages) she has already put some time into, but has lately hit some kind of wall with. The workshop—with a bit of help from great writers of the past and present—will attempt to get her over said wall, and furthermore outfit her with strategies that should prove useful when she hits the next one, and the one after.
