This intensive course over one day will explore the process of editing your own novel, how to prepare your work for submission and how to get the pitch right. Through a collaborative process of workshopping, writing exercises and critiquing, course participants will look at aspects of honing their fiction writing including voice, character, setting and plot. Writers will be asked to submit 10,000 words and a synopsis of a work-in-progress two weeks before the course commences.
