Special Topic: The Art of Revision
ENGL 313
Fall 2018 not offered

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? Students will 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 students learn how to change their writing point of view. Specifically, students will learn how to read critically, articulate criticism constructively, define uniqueness in both their own writing and others', and self-edit and revise. This course is especially designed for students who have previous experience in creative writing.
