This intensive week-long workshop will explore the process of editing your own novel from a publisher's perspective. The first four days will involve workshopping and editing your work while day five will focus on the publishing process, synopsis and pitch. As well as providing clear guidelines on honing your own fiction writing, with sessions focusing on elements such as structure, voice, character, setting and plot, course participants will have an opportunity to bring their writing through a collaborative process of workshopping, writing exercises and critiquing.
*Writers will be asked to submit 10,000 words and a synopsis of a work-in-progress three weeks before the course commences.
