THE INVISIBLE ART: RE-SEEING REVISION
Writers from Ernest Hemingway (“The only kind of writing is rewriting”) to Khaled Hosseini (“Writing for me is largely about rewriting”) to Joyce Carol Oates (“Most of my time writing is really re-writing”) have stressed the importance of revision. And yet, since all we usually have access to is the final draft of a published book or story, revision is something of an invisible art. In this craft session with Peter Ho Davies, we’ll try to draw it forth into the light by calling on examples from life, literature, and even pop culture (from remakes to reboots to retcons), and exploring a range of strategies—”Save” Your Darlings, Revising Titles, Getting to Done—or how to re-see re-vision.
