Advanced Revision Workshop

Description

Revision isn’t just about grammar and syntax – many other choices are critically important: Where should you begin your story or essay? What point of view should you use? What verb tense will work best? During this six-week workshop, our instructor – an experienced editor and writer – will provide valuable constructive feedback for participants and their respective works. Join us to build on the principles learned during previous courses in our Creative Writing program. Please submit 4,000-8,000 words of your work-in-progress prior to the first class.

This course is limited to students in the Creative Writing Certificate and must be completed last after all other required courses and electives.
