Pat Zietlow Miller Presents: 'Rising From The Wreckage: Revision Tips For Whatever You Write' | WisCommunity

Writing a draft of the story or essay or paper in your head is often the easy part. The hard part is revising what you create until it's the best-possible version of itself. And how do you even know when you've achieved that goal? This presentation talks about the two types of revision your writing needs and shares actionable tips to help your creation rise from the wreckage and stand tall and proud.Pat Zietlow Miller knew she wanted to be a writer ever since her seventh-grade English teacher read her paper about square-dancing skirts out loud in class and said: "This is the first time anything a student has written has given me chills." Pat started out as a newspaper reporter and wrote about everything from dartball and deer-hunting to diets and decoupage. Then, she joined an insurance company and edited its newsletter and magazine. Now, she writes insurance information by day and children's books by night. She has 11 books currently available and 12 more under contract. Her first book, SOPHIE'S SQUASH, won the Golden Kite Award for best picture book text. It also won an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor, a Charlotte Zolotow Honor and a Crystal Kite Award. BE KIND was on the New York Times bestseller list for 10 weeks. Pat has one wonderful husband, two delightful daughters and two pampered cats. She lives in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.
