Once you have an initial draft, editing is not the next step. Discovering a new vision is. “Beneath the external justifications for writing are secret internal motivations, and beneath these are subconscious impulses and great, pulsing mysteries we sense but cannot say. These appear in our writing’s inner story…that current of emotion and thought that moves in and through the plot.” (Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew, Living Revision)

In this workshop, we will undertake a series of writing exercises designed to allow us to see more deeply into our material to find its true shape and meaning. We’ll ask questions that invite uncovering what is trying to emerge from our writing and what may be getting in our way. In the process, revision will change from a daunting chore to a deeply engaging and heart-opening exploration.
