Revising Your Fiction -- Writing Workshop with Kirsten Bakis
dim. 10 février à 18:30
This is a workshop on revision for writers who have drafted at least part of a fiction manuscript and are ready to revisit their pages with an eye towards structure. We’ll discuss arc, ordering events, scene construction, and building towards a conclusion. Topics will be explored through in-class exercises, readings, and sharing short samples of work. During the course of the four hours participants will build a map of their projected plot, on paper, that they will take home. Tickets are $124 for this 4-hour intensive course. Please register at
