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? Bring that piece you’ve been struggling with, that piece that feels complete but hasn’t gotten published yet, that story you can’t leave alone. Join us in exploring and writing into the heart of your story—take the risk.

Refund & Credit Policy at PVWW
Because of non-refundable fees that we, PVWW, must pay for every transaction that happens, we are no longer able to give full refunds to those who register then withdraw from a workshop or class. If you withdraw from a workshop ten days or more before the start of the class, you'll receive full credit toward another workshop or class of equal value OR a refund minus 20% of the original fee. If you withdraw nine days before the start of the class up until the day before, you'll receive credit toward another class OR a refund minus 30%. If the class is canceled by PVWW for any reason, we will notify you and you will receive a full refund or, if you choose, credit in the amount of your payment toward another future PVWW class. Anyone who does not specify whether they would like a refund or credit within three months will automatically receive credit and will no longer be eligible for a refund. In the event of an emergency, we may consider a refund, minus our payment system's non-refundable fees. We handle these requests on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Joy (email@example.com) for this. You must make your request within the given season in which the class transpired.
