(Re)vision means to re-see. And it’s often said that revision—arguably the most important part of writing—comprises 90% of the process. Even so, revision can seem like a daunting task. How, as writers, do you actually go about re-seeing work that is so close to you in order to make it better? Join Jennifer Anderson as she presents various practical (and enjoyable!) approaches for successfully re-envisioning your writing, techniques that will help your writing reach its full potential.
