Course Description

The focus of this workshop will be rewriting; learning to look at a manuscript critically, with an eye toward developing the story or novel's potential. Participants will present at least three chapters or stories from a work-in-progress for discussion and evaluation. Objectives will include strengthening structure, narrative drive, deepening characterization, trimming exposition, and intensifying scenes. Participants will be encouraged to experiment, to make mistakes, to scratch out, and, if necessary, to start over. Rewriting is often perceived as difficult, but anything can be changed, shaped, and reshaped. This workshop will communicate to its participants that there is no fear in rewriting, only promise.
