Impressing agents, editors, and publishers is a competitive business, and making sure your work is well written, revised, and polished is the best way to set your manuscript apart. In this master class you’ll learn about the stages of revision and the process of taking your writing from rough draft to ready for submission. Often, a first draft does not quite live up to our hopes or expectations, but it is a first and necessary step toward the book we’re writing. Learn to see the potential in the draft, and to navigate the process of revision by learning how to read like an editor. We’ll look at the processes of editing and revising a manuscript, including discussion of developmental editing, line editing, and writing manuscript critiques. This is a hands-on workshop.
