Re-Visioning: Learning to Love the Revision Process – Fall 2022

Too many writers see revision as a burden and not part of the creative process. Yet, revision is easily 50% of writing for publication. Revision gives the writer an opportunity to re-vision, often in community with other writers—a creative collaborative process. Participants in this workshop will learn the differences between developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading. They will choose one manuscript to revise, moving through these three stages of revision collaboratively. Emphasis on Nonfiction, Personal Essay, and Memoir.

Kimberly Garts Crum has her MFA in Writing from Spalding University (Creative Nonfiction October 2003). For ten years, she taught literature and writing to undergraduates at Spalding. For nine years, she has taught personal essays and memoir via her business, Shape & Flow Writing Instruction, at Mellwood Arts Center in Louisville.

This class is suitable for all levels.
