Don’t Kill Your Darlings Yet: The Bold Art of Revision

All Levels | How do you know when your story or essay is finished? Revision is at once deeply personal, but can be supported by trusted readers. “Rewriting is painful,” Baldwin said. Can revision also be a clarifying and creative experience? We will read Ursula Le Guin, Judith Barrington, Zadie Smith, and others. Each participant will share work twice—an early draft and a substantial revision. Participants may leave with work they feel is finished and will develop revision practices of their own.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
