panel approaches to revision

4:00 - 5:00pm

Hosted by EVENT Magazine

To revise is to “see again.” But where do you start when revising a piece of creative writing? How do you know when you're finished? What are the stages of the revision process? How do you incorporate editorial feedback? Aimed at writers of all levels and genres, this panel will discuss strategies, exercises, and personal experiences with revision.

Moderator: JJ Lee, Wayde Compton, Joanne Arnott, Shashi Bhat
