Description: Righting the Craft: Revising, Rewriting and Bailing Out (2-day class) Feb 21st and Feb 28th- 1:00-5:00PM Richard Hugo House, Seattle, WA Actors rehearse, filmmakers reshoot, and artists paint over, yet all too often writers mis-judge their work by the fragile raft of the first draft. “Writing is rewriting. A writer must learn to deepen characters, trim writing, intensify scenes,” says Richard North Patterson. “To fall in love with the first draft to the point where one cannot change it is to greatly enhance the prospects of never publishing." So before you abandon ship or start rowing in circles, we’ll hoist the sails of exercise and discussion to catch the wind and rewrite the craft. Register at or call (206) 322-7030.
