Rewrites: A Constructive, Playful Approach
Zoom Event: 6:30 – 7:30pm
with Mara Alper.
If there were rules for writing they would be: #1 Write and #2 – 20 – Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite! But how do you get objective enough to your work to rewrite well?
This workshop offers techniques that will help you see your writing more clearly. Through listening, word scanning, recording, reverse reading and rereading in ways that awaken your brain, you’ll learn to tighten, sharpen and enliven your writing. First drafts are raw material. Rewrites are the essential skill. We’ll learn techniques, then have several rounds of writing for a short time, experiment with rewrite approaches, then pair up with a partner and share the outcomes. Your rewrite muscles and brain flexibility will be activated and rewriting will become more playful and productive.
Have paper and writing materials on hand . If you like, you can have previous work that you may want to useas rewrite material during the workshop,
