Strategies for Self-Editing: Your first draft is complete. What now? This workshop will give practical tips on revising, polishing, and proofing at two levels: macro (big picture) and micro (small details).  Macro will address story structure, plotting, characterization, and setting. Micro will examine your writing as paragraphs, sentences, and words. Bring a story or chapter in progress for practice.
