Revising Our Attitude About Revision

The demonstration provides a brief overview of Peter Elbow's levels of revision with non-linguistic representation of metaphors which help clarify these levels. The participants revise a piece significantly, once with a second tier or Muscular Revision and once at the deepest tier of revision, a Bone-level Revision. These deep revisions are achieved via the strategies of genre change and POV/narrator change to an existing narrative work.
