Most writers dread it...the revision phase. It can be daunting, painful, and confusing for any writer, especially if you don't know what to look for. But like writing itself, revising is a skill that takes time and persistence. In this craft talk and workshop, we'll discuss the importance of revision, unpack examples, review revision tips and methods, and practice revising our work. This class is open to writers of all genres. Participants will leave with a new appreciation for this necessary phase and a more robust revision toolkit to use in their work.
