Revise Like a Rockstar: Editing Strategies for Prose
Instructors: Christiane Buuck and Meredith Doench

Many writers dread the act of revision, particularly after they have just completed a draft. Sometimes the mere idea of editing a draft can be daunting, but strong editing is one of the sharpest tools in a writer’s toolbox. In this workshop, we will use a sample draft and practice several revision methods. At the end of this workshop you’ll have strategies to take back to your own work.

Christiane Buuck teaches writing at Ohio State. Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in many publications including Cutthroat, Crab Orchard Review, The Sun, and Glamour, and she is currently revising a novel.

Meredith Doench teaches writing at the University of Dayton. Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in literary journals such as Hayden’s Ferry Review, Women’s Studies Quarterly, and Gertrude. Her first crime thriller, Crossed, placed second in the Indie Fab Awards for Mystery and earned the Mary Dasher Award from the College English Association of Ohio. Her second thriller, Forsaken Trust, was released in May of 2017.
