Got a first or second (or eighth) draft you're trying to whip into shape. Grab a glass of wine (or tea) and join us for this 90 minute deep dive into the Art of Revision. During our 90 minutes together, we'll talk about strategies for uncovering whether your plot is moving, and whether your characters' actions make sense. We'll also talk about how to decide what to leave in, what to take out, and what to add. Bring your manuscript and your questions! This class is suitable for both fiction and memoir writers.
