One thing that’s assured when you write a novel in a month is the need for revision at the end of it all! Unfortunately, that prospect can be so daunting that some writers never take it on, even though their raw material is full of potential and possibility. Come together for this 3-hour workshop to learn some specific and hands-on revision strategies that will help you more fully realize the amazing work you’ve done this November!

Liz Garton Scanlon is the author of the highly-acclaimed, Caldecott-honored picture book All the World, illustrated by Marla Frazee, as well as Happy Birthday, Bunny, illustrated by Stephanie Graegin, Think Big, illustrated by Vanessa Newton, and others. Upcoming books include The Good-Pie Party, a picture book due next year, and her first novel for young readers, The Great Good Summer, due in 2015. Ms. Scanlon is also a poet, a teacher and a frequent & popular presenter at schools, libraries and conferences. To learn more, visit her web site at
