For our October Third Thursday, we’ll be back in-person at BookPeople. If you’re in the Austin area, we hope you’ll join us for this special event. If you’re not in the area, don’t worry! We’ll be live streaming on our YouTube Channel.
“The revision for me is the exciting part; it’s the part that I can’t wait for—getting the whole dumb thing done so that I can do the real work, which is making it better and better and better.” – Toni Morrison
Oh, the joy and the agony of revision! There’s a reason they call it “killing your darlings,” that’s for sure. For some writers, revision feels like a high crime, for others, it’s when the good stuff happens (see Toni Morrison’s quote above). Join us for this panel conversation with three accomplished authors – Aaron H. Aceves, Kali Fajardo-Anstine, and Jessica Goudeau – as we discuss the different ways they approach revision.
We’ll touch on when to start revising, how to know you’re done, and all of the steps between. If you’re just getting started, this conversation will help you consider what type of writer you are when it comes to revision. If you’re in the middle of revising, you’re going to come away with some tips for getting unstuck. And if you’ve already established your revision habits, this is your chance to maybe shake things up in service to yourself and the work. Regardless, it’s a topic that guarantees a lively discussion. Grab that red pencil and join us on October 19!
No need to RSVP for this in-person event (you can just show up), but if you’d like us to send you a reminder in the days leading up, register above and we’ll be sure to!
