Okay. It's not your favorite thing to do--edit, edit, edit, revise, revise, revise. A-a-n-n-d-d, do it again! It is, however, what stands between you and a publisher or, at least, between you and a fascinated reader who is just begging for the next chapter.
One of the trickiest parts of writing is the process of self-editing. Where is the line between being too generous to our own writing and being too critical? This class will offer sound self-editing advice, whether you plan to share your work with friends or family, journals, agents, or publishers. Reading materials will be emailed to you and discussed during class. Bring your current work for some in-class editing. There will be a 15-minute break.
Instructor: Ana Cristina Alvarez is an MFA graduate from the University of North Carolina—Wilmington and has worked for Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill and Graywolf Press. Her writing has appeared or is forthcoming in Black Warrior Review, The Butter, and Treehouse Magazine.
