Revision isn't just about grammar and syntax—many other choices are critically important: Where should you begin your story or essay? What point of view should you use? What verb tense will work best? During this workshop, our instructor—an experienced editor and writer—will provide valuable constructive feedback for participants and their respective works.
This course is designed for students in the Creative Writing Certificate and must be completed last—after all other required courses and electives. Students not currently enrolled in the Creative Writing Certificate will be considered for admission to this course on a case-by-case basis.
