Ruthless Revision: An Intensive, Hands-On Workshop with Sara Grant
“You’ve finished a first draft of your novel. It’s got a beginning, a middle and an end. But your first draft is only the first step on your road to publication.”
So how to move on from that first step? Join us for an in-depth workshop on revision – using a combination of discussion and hands-on activities. Be prepared to review and dissect your work-in-progress and leave with a revision plan to improve your novel.
And this really will be all about your novel, as participants are asked to bring the first two chapters of their novels as well as colour pens and highlighters to the workshop. Sara will share her tips, suggestions, and instructions on how to ruthlessly revise, and you’ll be on your way!
Members price: £18; non-members price: £25
