Make It New: Generative Revision

Trying to find your way through a draft can feel like being lost in the woods. You’re sure you left yourself a trail of breadcrumbs to follow, but now everything feels like a tangle of undergrowth, and the dense canopy of words is blocking all the light. In this multi-genre workshop, we play with old drafts to make a new path through the forest. Fair warning: This might involve a controlled burn. It might mean clearing away some growth to give something glorious more room to grow. Come armed with your most gnarled drafts, and we’ll try to tame them – or, coax even greater wildness from them.



Kate Finegan is a fiction writer whose work is supported by Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, and Toronto Arts Council. She is novel/novella editor for Split/Lip Press. She was winner of PRISM International's 2020 Jacob Zilber Prize for short fiction, as selected by Kristen Arnett, and was awarded The Fiddlehead’s 2017 fiction prize. She was runner-up for The Puritan’s Thomas Morton Memorial Prize for a story featuring chickens which, according to judge Heather O’Neill, “have the personality and depth of Dickensian characters.” She lives in North Battleford.
