Session Seven Handout

Session Seven: Revising Assignment

Choose a past assignment that you would like to revise. See if there are ways to tighten your writing and clarify your meaning without detracting from your narrative voice.

You may want to address questions raised in class about your piece or areas of improvement that were suggested by the facilitator. Check for passive verbs that may be changed to active. Is your title effective? Do you provide descriptions of the major characters and places in your story?
