Down to the Bone Gristle: Exercises in Revision & Editing
Students in this workshop will participate in various writing exercises that will encourage them to pare down the excess often accumulated in early drafts. Participants will discuss different strategies of avoiding redundancies and excess words along with reviewing drafts by notable poets.
