Beyond the First Draft: Revising Your Work

Spring 2017

According to Ernest Hemingway, the first draft of anything is, well, we can’t politely print what he said, but we can tell you it rhymes with “quit” (which is something you should never do after your first draft). To ensure you never give up, this class, through a combination of lectures, in-class exercises, workshops, discussions, and homework, will take a draft of your manuscript (either fiction or narrative non-fiction) through a recursive rewriting process. You’ll refine and improve elements such as points of view, narrative consistency, and structural design. The result will be a better manuscript, and you’ll have the knowledge to effectively critique your own writing.
