Revise Your Messy First Draft

Intermediate | Congrats on finishing your imperfect first draft! If you’re feeling the elation and terror of “What’s next?” help is here. During our first three sessions, you’ll create a plan for revising your novel into a second draft with clear structure and plot and deeper characters. We’ll spend the remaining five weeks diving into revisions, using your blueprint, with in-class exercises to build key scenes. Prerequisite: Two-thirds of first draft completed.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
