2007 Professional Writing Retreat B
Editing and Publishing
August 2 - August 5, 2007
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Writing Retreat B is designed to support writers near the end of the
writing process. As in Retreat A, participants join writing
groups, meet with facilitators and guest editors, and spend sustained
time working on their writing. To participate in this retreat, writers
need to have a completed draft at the time of application. Activities in this retreat focus less on developing ideas
and more on revising the presentation of those ideas.
Retreat activities include
narrowing down and revising work for a particular journal or audience
- editing for accurate and effective documentation
integrating and using sources thoughtfully
- line editing for clarity, economy, style, and precision.
Participants will leave this retreat with a manuscript ready for
publication. Equally important, participants will leave with a set of
skills and practices that enable them to support publication
efforts at their local site.
