Revising & Editing: The Writing Workshop
*Free and paid tickets available*
Build a confident process for improving your writing
This is a workshop for people who have written something, and want to make it better, but who are not yet ready to hand it over to an editor.
In other words: how do you make your draft as good as it can be before you share it with other people? Or: how do you find your way back into a draft you can't finish, or don't know how to re-start?
With only one or two presentations a day, this workshop is a low-stress, high-value guide to overcoming the most stressful challenge writers face: how to improve the thing you wrote.
This is a practical workshop
Each speaker will teach revision and editing techniques (building up a scene, revising for style, fixing plot holes, building up the impact of a draft), and I've designed the schedule to give them time to teach in-depth.
All presentations (but not the prompt sessions) are open to all ticket holders, free and paid.
If you are on a free pass, each talk is watchable live and for 24 hours after it goes live. After that, the talk will no longer be available. If you, instead, have a paid ticket, you will have ongoing, indefinite access to watch the replays.
Additionally, each speaker will share a practice, prompt, or multi-part exercise that we will try out in a follow-up session.
You'll work on a detailed prompt that will allow you to apply the skills you've learned right then and there. Those hands-on, work sessions are only available to paid attendees.
