This six-week course will teach you how to edit a work-in-progress, in order to hone and refine your manuscript before submission to publishers. The course will provide an overview of the complete editing process – structure, voice, characterisation, setting and plot – and will also focus on clarifying goals and setting intentions, giving consideration to the current publishing landscape. Taking a results-orientated approach, Ciara will guide participants in a process of constructive feedback on their work, as a necessary component in the learning process.
Ciara Considine has worked in Irish publishing for over two decades, formerly as editorial manager at New Island Books, then publisher at Hodder Headline Ireland, now Hachette Books Ireland. She is also an accomplished singer and songwriter, under the name Ciara Sidine. She lives in Dublin.
