NOT a cut-and-dried lecture, this workshop provides overviews of editing issues that first-time novelists may be meeting for the first time. Begins with an approach to first-cut evaluation of your first draft, then addresses in broad terms participant’s current key concerns (up to 15 minutes per participant.)

Open to UP TO 6 first-time novelists who have completed first drafts.
