Join writer Blair Hurley for a workshop on revision.

"All writing is re-writing," Nabokov said. It's only when the messy first draft is finished that the real work begins of finding a story or novel's true potential. In this 90-minute workshop, the class will discuss what happens when writers complete the first draft, and the re-envisioning that goes into thoughtful revision. Using readings from Raymond Carver, Zadie Smith, and others, author Blair Hurley will lead discussions into the lesser-known tools of revision that professional writers employ. Attendees will use in-class exercises and practical techniques to revise their manuscripts, with the goals of shopping for conflict, exploring character motivations, and streamlining language.

In partnership with StoryStudio Chicago. 

This event will be held live online using Zoom. Once you have registered, check your email the day of the program for a link to join the meeting.
