ONE DAY INTENSIVE AT THE WOODSTOCK BOOKFEST
Revise and Edit Your Writing
April 28, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm — Woodstock, New York
When it comes to writing, who needs to revise?
You do. We all do. But where do you start? What are you looking for? How do you decide what to rewrite, what to cut, what to add?
In this one-day workshop, editor and writer Kitty Sheehan will walk you through the revision process, a step at a time.
Revision and editing are the final polishing steps before you submit a manuscript.
If both are done well, your work will have a much better chance to rise above the rest, when it hits the agent’s desk.
Here are a few skills you’ll gain after your day with Sheehan:
New confidence in your writing voice
Quick recognition of the “junk” words in your writing
Knowing how and when to add details
Using dialogue to move your story forward
Making your dialogue match your characters
Narrowing down your themes and writing to them
Moving your content around to tell a better story
Sheehan will also explain the different kinds of editing your work might undergo, even after you’ve done all the revising you can.
You still may need line editing, copy editing, or developmental editing.
None of these are the same as proofreading. It’s crucial to know the difference.
Come join us and learn how to make your writing instantly better, with some simple revision. Then learn how the proper editing will make it infinitely better.
When you cut out the noise, what will you find?
Your day includes a delicious lunch delivered to your workshop, Friday night’s Little Bites and Big Libations (appetizers, spirits and desserts) at a social evening with other participants, our instructors and panelists.
