The Revision Workshop is a reading group that brings together English grad students from all subfields and all years to discuss the processes of writing and publication. The group balances an interest in publication as a pragmatic measure of professionalization with a serious investment in questions of style, tone, and method. It is especially designed to offer younger students a space for contemplating these issues before beginning work on their dissertation. It meets regularly for intensive two-hour-long workshops of a single student's work, and for occasional faculty presentations about article development and publication.
