So you want to be published? It’s been said that after the wild creative outpouring, the real writing happens in the art of revision. Your best chance to attract readers is through a strong “re-seeing” of your work, to craft the work so it appeals to readers of all stripes.
Writers who learn to love revision are more likely to write publishable work that wins readers and leads to deeper satisfaction in the writer’s craft. This workshop will help publication-oriented writers learn to demystify key areas of revision, from the micro to the macro. Rosenfeld will teach how to actually enjoy revision by breaking it down into simple, successful “waves” and easy-to-use tools you’ll use over and over in future works of many genres.
Jordan is the author of the suspense novels Forged in Grace and Night Oracle, and the forthcoming Women in Red, as well as the writing guides Make a Scene: Crafting a Powerful Story One Scene at a Time, and, with Rebecca Lawton, Write Free: Attracting the Creative Life.
She teaches an ongoing series of online writing courses and webinars on the subjects of scenes, revision, plot, and tension-building. Visit www.jordanrosenfeld.net for information.
