The 2020 Inklings Book Contest is open for submissions! Woohoo!

Between now and the deadline on 3/15/20, we’ll be posting a few mini-lessons to help you prepare for the contest. Today, we’re talking about revision. Watch the video below and you can use the interactive activity below to capture your ideas and thoughts.

If you’d like to dive into ALL of our prep-lessons, sign up for our free Inklings Book Contest Prep Course. It will take from start to finish and even help you revise and format your work for submission.



All right… let’s get started… 🎉

After drafting comes revision! Sometimes revision can feel daunting or unexciting, but this mini-lesson will help you break it down and get to work. Ultimately, revision starts with understanding the effect you intend with your words, and creating that experience for your reader. Do you want your reader to laugh? To think deeply? To feel understood? Revise with your goal in mind. Grab some index cards and we’ll play around with our stories and poems in order to see them in a new light and revise them to be even better than before.
