020) Worry It and Walk Away: The Art of Revision

Most writers have a short story (or two or three or ten) that feels unfinished. Maybe you got stuck on the ending. Maybe you can’t figure out what your character’s problem is. The true secret of fiction is it often takes three, four or five drafts to find out where you’re headed. In this class, we’ll take a look at our drafts and do hands-on, weekly exercises to get your story into shape. Focusing on significant detail, scene development, and character arc, we’ll work on revising your stories to get closer to the heart of the piece. We’ll also talk about publishing strategies to get your stories out into the world.
