Every writer knows, there is writing and then there is revising. The editing and revision phase requires putting on a separate hat than the one you wore for the first draft. Often the difference between a good piece and a great piece lies in the writer’s ability to both to ruthlessly reduce and delicately refine their work. This workshop is designed to help writers develop and hone their editor’s eye through review of their own work and participating in peer critique through the traditional ‘workshop’ method.
