Instructor - Heather Marshall Dates - Sundays, Jan 14, 21, 28, Feb. 4
Time - 2 to 4 PM Location - Joe’s Place, 2 Williams St., Greenville, SC 29601
Class description: You’ve heeded all the writerly advice to ‘just write’. You have several stories, or a memoir, or a novel (or two) drafted. Perhaps you’ve submitted them. And received a rejection email, or fifty. You suspect your story could be better, but you’re not quite sure how to accomplish that.
In this workshop, we’ll spend the beginning of each session exploring approaches to revision—choices we make with regards to time, scene and summary, language—and then workshop. By the end of the four weeks, participants will have a keener eye for their own writing and an understanding of what’s working in the draft that they bring, and what they might try give the work a better chance at publication.
