Revision Tactics in Nonfiction

This is the place to bring your tattered beginnings and choked drafts. We will spend the weekend breathing life into them, using tools that make rewriting a joy instead of a drag. Each participant is invited to bring the grubbiest draft hiding in the hard drive. You will be offered practical ways to address your own particular writing challenges and learn how to shape old prose into something new. Bring anything you’d love to turn into art: a chapter, a paragraph, or a sentence. For both the novice and experienced writer.
