WORKSHOP STRATEGIES FOR REVISITING,
REIMAGINING and IMPROVING YOUR PROSE
Few get it right—much less perfect—the first time around. Revision is not only an integral part of the writing process, it can also be the most rewarding.
Bring a minimum of 5 pages of your current prose project (novel, novella, short story, memoir or essay) to work on in class.
This is a prose revision workshop. Poets are welcome to attend,
but the exercises are prose exercises.
Send an email to Katherine Brown firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat.
Payment can be mailed to
Writers of the Mendocino Coast, PO Box 762, Fort Bragg 95437
or paid at the door prior to the workshop.
