So you’ve finished writing your novel — what next? What do published novelists do between that raw first draft and the final manuscript to make their plots sizzle and their prose sing?

The key lies in reworking your manuscript until your writing jumps off of the page. If you have completed the first draft of a novel, this workshop will help you develop skills to shape your plot for maximum dramatic impact and give life and texture to characters, dialogue, and setting.

Note: Course is designed for writers who have completed the first draft of their novels.

Novel V: Oct 21, 28, Nov 4, 11, 18, Dec 2 (no mtg 11/25)
