Learn Deep Revision Techniques

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Sunday, Jan 17, 1-3pm Pacific time

Dr. Laurel Yourke will speak on the heart of revision-it's not just polishing or substituting one word for another. Instead, look at revision as viewing at your own words in a completely new way: re-envisioning them. One might divide this approach into five steps:

What is the essence of your story, poem, or book?
What is deep structure, and how can you use it to diagnose?
What issues do you want to tackle, and how will you approach this process?
What's the relationship between author, narrator, characters, and reader?
What's needed for that final polish?

View revision through the lens of exploration, and it becomes an exciting challenge to transform your project into everything you hoped it would be.

Dr. Laurel Yourke, who has received two teaching awards, recently published Beyond the First Draft: Deep Novel Revision. Earlier publications include Take Your Characters to Dinner (on the craft of fiction) and Waiting for Beethoven (a poetry collection). During her career at UW-Madison Continuing Studies, she taught students from eight to eighty, presenting at Writer's Institute, Write by the Lake, School of the Arts, among others. Her speaking engagements across Wisconsin ranged from writing and revising fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
