Highlights Foundation Revision Retreat

I love this quote:

“If a teacher told me to revise, I thought that meant my writing was a broken-down car that needed to go to the repair shop. I felt insulted. I didn’t realize the teacher was saying, ‘Make it shine. It’s worth it.’ Now I see revision as a beautiful word of hope. It’s a new vision of something. It means you don’t have to be perfect the first time. What a relief!” —Naomi Shihab Nye

The quote came in an email I received last week announcing a new workshop at the Highlights Foundation. Children’s writers can take part in the Kids’ Book Revision Retreat and Critique Group Recharge. The workshop runs May 29-June 3, 2012 and is conducted by Harold Underdown and Eileen Robinson.

The workshop will also feature special guests Sandy Asher and Cheryl Klein.

Scholarships for the workshop may be available. Check the Highlights Foundation website for details.
