Knowing how to revise is what separates professional writers from amateurs. This session will cover the different levels of revision, micro (a scene or chapter) vs. the whole enchilada of a book length manuscript. You'll receive a detailed handout of questions to ask as you (or readers) critique. We'll discuss choosing readers and working selectively with feedback. We'll also consider a crucial part of revision, thinking away from the page.
