What you'll learn in this fiction class:

You’ve finished your first draft, put it aside, and after a suitable time, read it over. Maybe you’ve come across passages where the story flows and you’re thrilled by what you’ve created. Yet, you’ve also found passages that make you cringe: boring paragraphs of description, scenes of dialogue that don’t move the story, characters who fail to fully develop, and so on. For better or worse, this is how it should be (or at least how it is) for most writers. This is where the work of revision begins.

Stories—whether short stories or novels—don’t often fully reveal themselves the first time around (or the second time). Revision isn’t an exercise in proofreading or copyediting, it’s an integral part of the storytelling process, building, reinforcing, hauling large chunks of fiction from one place to another, until you find the exact right way for your story to unfold. Roll up your sleeves for this eight week intensive!
