What you can learn.

  • Unearth the heart of character and conflict in your writing
  • Find each scene's unique focus and purpose in your draft
  • Undertake two vigorous revisions of an existing draft
  • Apply narrative tools and techniques to your writing to elevate it to the next level

About this course:

After all the work of getting through a first draft, little seems so barbaric as the slashing and burning of entire characters and scenes—but making such vulgar literary sacrifices can enable the writer to unearth the heart of conflict and character, find focus in each scene, and harness the best story s/he can offer. In this workshop, participants undertake two rigorous revisions, sticking with a draft all the way through to its best potential. By considering various elements of storytelling and developing dexterity with an assortment of narrative tools and techniques, students should finish the class with a story that’s really on course to being done.
