Taking the Next Step: Workshop and Revision (2-part)
Got any new, raw material — perhaps from the last Grub class you took? Ready to move onto the second step? This is the class for you! In this 2-part, multi-genre workshop, we’ll dedicate the entirety of class to discussing and workshopping your first (or second or third) draft, then sharing space as we revise.
During each short workshop session, we’ll take a few minutes to read a short sample of your work (up to 2 pages of prose/poetry, single-spaced). You will guide our conversation with any questions/concerns that you may have about your draft. Then, your peers will provide light constructive feedback, ideas for expansion, and praise. After workshops, you will have time to implement helpful suggestions during a revision session.
Take this opportunity to have a sounding board for your draft, build relationships within the Grub community, and start polishing your work!
This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
