    Sunday, March 20, 2016 - 2:00pm
    Pollak Room AB

    You've written the first draft of your novel. Congratulations! Now what do you do with it?

    In this workshop, author James Tadd Adcox will discuss moving from the first draft to the second - and beyond! Learn strategies for revising and shaping your novel, plus tools and techniques to help you keep it all organized. Along the way, he'll tackle questions both theoretical ("What should the beginning of the novel do? How about the end?") and eminently practical ("How do I convince my roommate/significant other that it's extremely important for me to have an entire hardcopy draft of my novel spread across the living room floor?").
