A lot of books and articles address the creative process, but not the craft of revision.  For instance: why does revision have to be so hard? And how do you tell if a piece needs revision and where?  And what about whether the piece should be a memoir, a personal essay, a short story, or even a poem? Revision is hard, but less so when done with the right tools and in the right company.  This workshop offers both: six glorious weeks working with fellow writers to perfect a single piece, or several.  We will focus on re-visioning our works, revision strategies, cover letters, markets, and more.

Poet and writer Britton Gildersleeve teaches at Oklahoma State University, where she also directs a federal grant—the OSU Writing Project.  Her work has appeared in New Millennium Writings, Nimrod, Calyx, Spoon River, and The Florida Review, among other journals.
