"Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew is not only an author you should read but a teacher you can trust." --Barbara Brown Taylor

“Revision is the spiritual practice of transformation—of seeing text, and therefore the world, with new eyes. Done well, revision returns us to our original love.”

In Living Revision, award-winning author and teacher Elizabeth J. Andrew guides writers through the writing and revision process. With insight and grace, Andrew asks writers to flex their spiritual muscles, helping them to transform their writing as they in turn transform themselves into more curious and reflective human beings.

Elizabeth J. Andrew teaches memoir, essay, and journal writing at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. She is the author of Writing the Sacred Journey and On the Threshold.
