Prewrite. Draft. Revise. Edit. Publish. These are the five steps of the writing process. Whether or not you intend to publish your work, you want it to be its best expression of your intention. After you craft and revise your story, essay, or poem so that it meets the requirements of its genre, how do you interrogate it—word by word by word—so that it puts the art in literary art? We will review the formal elements of language, the writer’s medium—words, phrases, and clauses as grammatical and structural units and conveyors of meaning (denotation and connotation)—and work through some short pieces through the eyes of an editor.
