Writing through Revision [Mary Potter]
Want to write a short story? Learn the basic fiction elements? Practice revising? In this class, you’ll do all three. Following a revolutionary approach, we’ll start with a blank page, draft an account of an event, and then revise that draft, each week learning a different element (POV, time management, objects/setting, age of protagonist, world events, conflict, narrative structure, and wild card) and adding that layer to the previous revision. On the last week, we’ll present the completed stories in class.
