WORKSHOP: “Editing Fiction from an Embodied Experience” with Beth Follett

Saturday, November 26, 2022

What is editing?

What is the difference between generating text and editing text?

What is editing when it surfaces from an embodied experience?

This workshop will especially appeal to writers who have a finished draft of a short story or novel, or to writers whose work has been turned down recently by publishers/literary magazines who say the work is not polished.
