Editor's Note

Revision: Creating More Complexity in Your Narrative with Akil Kumarasamy
Saturday, September 23
9 AM  – 12 PM PST / 12 – 3 PM EST

In this class, we will discuss the process of revision and how we might go about complicating our narratives. I will share early drafts of my own short stories and walk participants through my own process. Participants will bring drafts of their own work, and by the end of the class should have a revision plan that they can implement.

The scholarship for this intensive has been awarded.
