Re-seeing Revision with Peter Ho Davies

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 craft. In this seminar we’ll try to draw it forth into the light, calling on examples from life, literature and even pop culture (from remakes to reboots to retcons), as well as offering a range of strategies - ‘Save’ your darlings, Revising Titles, Getting to Done - for how to re-see re-vision.
