The Final Push: Mastering Editing


Congratulations!  You've got a completed draft of your manuscript.  This master class will help you with the next stage- editing. How do you know which darlings must be killed, versus which should be saved?  We will discuss different approaches to the editing process and provide practical tips for tackling issues including: story structure, pacing, character development, dialogue, and creating an emotionally satisfying story.  The differences between writing "short" versus writing "long" will be reviewed along with strategies to address both. Bring your manuscript and come ready to work.
