Revision Is Risky Business: Advice and Exercises for Fiction & Nonfiction Writers (with Celia Jeffries)
What separates talented writers from truly accomplished ones is revision—the risky business of questioning all that has been done. How does a writer move from a first draft to the final one where the truth of the writing sparkles and shines?

Join us in exploring and writing into the heart of your story—take the risk.
