Wisely Revise
Posted by: Coronado Arts 4 years, 6 months ago


Presenter: Janice Steinberg

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.

Janice Steinberg's novel, The Tin Horse (Random House, 2013), received First Prize in the San Diego Books Awards-General Fiction and was listed in O Magazine's “16 Books to Pick Up This March." She has also published five mystery novels and is an award-winning arts journalist with more than 400 articles in the San Diego Union-Tribune, Dance Magazine, and elsewhere. She has taught novel-writing at the University of California, San Diego and in a private workshop.
