You wrote something. So now what? The most indispensable tool in writing is editing. Every draft is an opportunity to reimagine, experiment, and learn. In this workshop, we will closely read and consider our works-in-progress. There will be no prescriptions or quick fixes. As a group, we’ll examine the engines and heartbeats of each piece, and discuss strategies for discovering its “best self.” Students will learn to develop their “editor’s brain” and find new ways to challenge themselves.
This class is for poetry & short prose (flash fiction or micro essays, 800 words max).
