Raanana: A One-Day "Revisions" Writing Workshop

Revisions Workshop:
How to see your work again

with writer & editor Nadia Jacobson, hosted by Jennifer Lang of the Raanana Writers Salon

Congratulations on finishing the first draft of a story, novel, or memoir! Now you need to revise it. 

Are you finding it difficult to edit your work because you get lost in the words, you can’t think how best to improve the text or you’re just overwhelmed at the thought of revision?

In this workshop, you'll learn to revise your work to locate its emotional strength, preserve its essence and sharpen its power. By the end of the day, you'll leave with a host of techniques to review (resee) your work and to restructure and edit it on the macro and micro level.
