To revise in the Latin [revīsere] means to visit again, look at again. In this class, we will revisit your story—be it a short story, memoir, novella, novel, or something else—and refine the parts:
•we’ll layer the plot, vary the pace;
•exchange monolithic characters for complex humans;
•begin well and end well;
•link things together;
•fine-tune sentences, make them beautiful.
We’ll fret and perspire, moan and cry. And ultimately, we’ll give our readers something to think about, something to feel.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
