Special Topic: The Art of Revision

ENGL 313
Fall 2015
Section: 01  
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

Revision is considered the final stage of writing but what is it, exactly? What does the process entail? What constitutes a revision? How do other writers revise? And what are the rules writers can follow to make revision a cornerstone of their writing process? You'll find out in this class. Revision, simply, is not correction. Revision is not changing "red" to "crimson" or running your spell checker. Revision is a change in your point-of-view. This class's goal is to help you learn how to change your writing point-of-view. Specifically, you'll learn how to read critically, articulate criticism constructively, define uniqueness in both your own writing and others, and self-edit and revise. This course is especially designed for students who have previous experience in creative writing.
