Revision Precision Toolbox II – This course pairs workshopping with close reading of outside texts that demonstrate success in a spectrum of classic craft challenges. We will address issues such as narrative tension, verisimilitude, writing emotion, point-of-view , and more. Pairing reading and workshopping will help writers understand their own craft challenges as well as how expert writers address and succeed with the same challenges. Knowing what success looks like should help writers use feedback most effectively for their post-workshop revision.
