Tell Me a Story: Revision is Everything (Session 4 of 6)
March 12, 2022 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
In this six-month Interintellect Salon series, writer and editor Julie Mosow shares everything she knows about writing, becoming the writer you’ve always hoped to be…and, most importantly, about finishing the work you start.
A first draft is just the beginning, but so is a second draft, and probably even a third. How many times do we need to revise our work so that it’s ready for the world? How long will it take? How do we evaluate our own writing? What are some of the best techniques for revision? When should we ask for feedback from others? And how do we know that we’re finally finished?
These are just some of the questions we’ll be discussing during the fourth session in the series as we figure out how to take our work from GOOD to GREAT to DAZZLING. Please feel free to join even if you haven’t been to any of the previous salons in the series.
