Craft Seminar: Taking Shape: The Revision Process

« back to classes page

Join award winning author Malinda Lo for a craft workshop dedicated to tips and tools for helping your novel revision take shape.

In this virtual workshop, writers will learn how to revise a novel-length work. This workshop includes nuts-and-bolts tips for how to approach and manage revising a novel, as well as exercises that will help writers focus their vision for their novel, and examples of how to develop authority on a sentence level through multiple drafts. 

Although it's not necessary for writers to have completed a novel-length draft, it will be useful if writers have a novel-length work in progress to consider. 

Tuesday, April 4, 2023
6:00pm to 8:30pm EST (with breaks)
Zoom webinar

This is an open enrollment webinar, including writing exercises and a moderated Q&A. A password protected recording of the workshop will be made available after the event for participants who cannot attend synchronously. 

We have a limited number of scholarships for BIPOC writers and LGBTQ+ writers. For information, please email with "Taking Shape Scholarship" in the subject line.
