4-Week: From Micro to Macro—Revising the Details (Zoom)

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

This intensive prose-focused workshop zeros in on the fine art of the line edit, considering punctuation, word choice, sentence structure, and repetition to explore how such microscopic work can result in big picture revisions. Each week, we’ll zoom in on key techniques, using an instructor provided manual to guide us. We’ll conduct live line editing sessions of participant work via screen share and explore a variety of different strategies for reshaping our sentences while discovering the hidden inspiration to be found in such a seemingly tedious process.

This course is a more in-depth version of the Daily Zoom: The Art of the Line Edit and will afford participants the time to actually utilize line editing techniques with the support of their peers and the instructor. We’ll read short excerpts from our peers, looking for repeated words, adverbs, or possible line edits for in-class workshop with occasional, but minimal, homework. We’ll have room to play together, discuss the process, and work together to overcome the daunting revision process. This workshop is ideal for anyone with a rough or fairly reworked draft of prose.
