The Final Polish

Conference Workshop

You’ve finally finished a draft of your novel and you’re ready to start querying. Or you’ve written something fabulous, but it’s twenty thousand words longer than it should be and you don’t know what to do. In this workshop, Joëlle Anthony will take you through that final pass before sending your manuscript out into the world. She’ll give you tips for shortening and tightening your story, making dialogue snap, digging out the clichés, and more. Once you’ve applied her final polish techniques, your manuscript will shine, raising you above the rest who are in too much of a hurry to do this important step. This workshop is designed for writers who have completed a draft. Please bring the first ten pages of your MS if you have it with you. If you don’t, you are still welcome to attend.
