What To Do

Step 1: The Draft

Create a new copy of your Workshop 2 draft (be sure that your new file’s name makes it clear that this is a Workshop 3 draft).

Adjust your MLA-formatted heading to reflect the new draft’s date

Under your heading, add a content warning if your submission contains sensitive material (sexual assault, graphic violence, self-harm, etc.). See the Workshop Content Warning page for more details.

Revise the writing you have in the draft already. You can take the advice of your group members and instructor or not, it’s up to you.

  1. If you’re working on a short story, revise and add new writing until you have at least 6 double-spaced pages of the story written. If you can write to the end of the story, great!

If you’re working on poetry, revise the existing poems, and add new poetry until you have at least 6 single-spaced pages of poetry (6 pages of poetry, not 6 individual poems). Boldface your poem titles, and leave a little white space between each poem—enough to show readers where one poem ends and the next one begins.
