Literature and Writing
Rewrite That Book! The Next Draft
As a freelance editor, I'm frequently asked, "I have a draft done. Now what?" The answer is, "Rewrite." But rewriting an entire book can be overwhelming. This workshop will help you enjoy the process and give you the tools you need to get it done. Topics include: character growth, upping the stakes, self-editing, stronger beginnings and endings, and infusing theme into your story. In-class writing exercises and critiquing will set you up for success! This hands-on workshop is designed for novelists and memoirists with a complete draft of their manuscript.
