Visions and Revision Workshop

Writing workshop in New Jersey
January 17-20, 2014
Led by Roberta Clipper

Visions and Revision: Fiction & Creative Nonfiction - Filled*
What will keep an editor reading your writing? How can you make it stand out? This workshop will help you focus and polish your prose, whether creative nonfiction or fiction. Feedback and encouragement will help make your writing stronger, and guided revising will ensure it rings true to your vision. Be ready to submit 2-5 pages on which you need feedback by Dec. 15 (or if registering after that date, submit within a week of registering). This workshop will focus intensely on revising and you will benefit more by submitting a work in progress rather than a piece that is nearly complete. The workshop leader and participants will read each submission before the Getaway.

*Limited to just 8 participants.*

*Interested in a workshop that is filled? View our Wait List Information.


"I wanted to thank you for all of the insights and encouragement I received from attending last January. Attached is a preview of the results. The book will be available to the public later this week."
   ~ Bill, Visions and Revision Participant
