How I Revise: Fiction with Michelle Ross

July 8 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

How I Revise: Fiction with Michelle Ross
$75 | Jul 8, 10:30 AM + a 1-on-1 consultation (Consultations will be scheduled individually over the week following the July 8 workshop)
Location: ONLINE (Both the class and the consultation will take place via Zoom)

It’s hard to know when a story is done. Harder yet is knowing that a story is not done, but having little idea how to finish it, how to fix it, or how to make it sing.

In this intimate, two-part revision workshop, author Michelle Ross will lead a 90-min class in which she’ll share her revision philosophy and walk students through the editorial moves she makes when working on her own fiction. In addition to the class, each student will also receive a 20-minute, one-on-one manuscript consultation with Michelle Ross (up to 5,000 words). She’ll read student work closely and provide ideas on how to push the writing toward completion and prepare it for publication.

Michelle Ross is the author of three story collections: There’s So Much They Haven’t Told You, winner of the 2016 Moon City Short Fiction Award; Shapeshifting, winner of the 2020 Stillhouse Press Short Fiction Award (2021); and They Kept Running, winner of the 2021 Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction (2022). Her work is included in Best Small Fictions 2021; Best Microfiction 2020, 2021, and 2023; the Wigleaf Top 50 2019 and 2022; and the Norton anthology, Flash Fiction America. It received special mention in the Pushcart Prize anthology.
