EDITING A NOVEL

December 4 @ 16:30 - December 9 @ 10:00

An early draft of a novel is a very different beast froma finished manuscript. How do you get from one to the
other, and how do you create distance between yourself
and your manuscript? How can you hone your sentences
while also digging deeper to discover three-dimensional
characters and a natural narrative drive? Here is your
chance to work with an experienced editor and novelist.
You’ll sharpen your writer’s ears and eyes; you’ll explore
the ‘deep wiring’ of your novel; and you’ll relish the
experience of coming closer to your own vision and voice.

Working with each writer’s specific play/text, we will probe, feedback, inspire and encourage solutions to any writing problems or process hiccoughs. Acting as writing buddies, we will help to get your creative juices flowing, so that participants can use the rest of their week to get that precious play improved, and maybe even finished.
