We're not good enough to not practice. I write and revise almost 4 hours a day. ~Kiese Lamon, writer
In partnership with Roebling Books & Coffee (Newport, KY) and WWf(a)C. Join Kentucky-based writer and teacher, Tina Neyer, and Cincinnati-based author and blogger, Annette Januzzi Wick, in this three-part workshop to rewrite or revise a larger body of work. This includes creative non-fiction (memoir, biography, autofiction, collection of personal essays) and fiction, all with a focus toward a complete manuscript. *Does not include poetry or non-fictional how-to's/business genres.
Each session will contain an overview of terminology, strategies, techniques, and generative in-class prompts related to revision. Subject matter will include, but is not limited to, structure, character, themes, outlining. We will also utilize Matt Bell's Refuse to be Done as a resource.
Criteria: Participants must have a substantial body of work ready for the rewrite or revision stage, be willing to share work openly ("without fearing someone will steal my idea"), commit to preparation, and be willing to critique and remain open to critique for the sake of improvement.
Three Saturdays: Jan 28, Feb 25, and Mar 25 from 1-4:30pm.
Roebling Books & Coffee in Newport, 601 Overton St, Newport, KY 41071
*Participants must attend first session to attend 2nd and 3rd. Full payment due at time of registration. No refunds for missed sessions.
