So maybe you wrote a book during National Novel Writing Month last November, or maybe you wrote a novel and shoved it in a drawer ten years ago. Either way, you’ve got a big messy draft and you are ready to revisit it, to revise it. 

But what do published novelists do between that raw first draft and the polished final manuscript? The key lies in identifying the novel’s strengths and weaknesses, coming up with a revision plan, and implementing all the necessary changes. If you have completed the first draft of a novel, this workshop will give you the tools you need to ready your novel for submission.
