This Saturday: Revise Like a Pro

Here is a reminder that the Writers Forum monthly meeting is this Saturday, October 8, at 10:30 at All Saints Episcopal Church, 2150 Benton Drive.

This presentation will explore a variety of revision techniques that will allow writers to see their work with fresh eyes and a new perspective. What happens after the first draft of a novel can be the most difficult part of the writing process. What works? What doesn’t?

ellen1Presenter Ellen Jellison will discuss three easy steps in making the revision process less painful:

  • The Four Basic Elements to your Narrative,
  • Response to Literature,
  • Questioning Strategies

Ellen Jellison earned her degree in Anthropology from Chico State University. She has worked as an Archaeologist for the U.S. Forest Service and as a teacher of English and History in middle school in the Redding area. She now writes middle grade and young adult fiction, and is a member of SCBWI, the Historical Novel Society, and Sisters in Crime. As a teacher turned writer, Ellen understands the importance of revision, or as stated in Latin, revisare, meaning “to look at again.”
