Revision: Fun not Torture

A concrete model of revision is shown by using clay figures. Participants will be asked to make a figure and add or subtract from the figure. Next the figure will be changed to a different figure using the same clay. Participants will be asked to write about their experience, share the writing with a partner, and then change that prose to a poem and share this kind of revision. They will discuss the process of working in both mediums and look for similarities.
