Stuck? It can be hard to navigate the tricky shoals where stories flounder or thrive. You’ve got your feet wet, now let’s have a good look at the terrain. In this comprehensive workshop we’ll share, discuss and reimagine our stories and chapters. You’ll learn to develop character, shape plot, finesse structure and calibrate voice with assurance. Together we’ll demystify revision and editing. Finally, we’ll map the way toward publication and further development.
Time is running out to submit your manuscript to this year’s Atlantic Writing Competition! The deadline for the AWC is 11:59 PM AST on Monday, February 2nd.
Freelance editor Marianne Ward and author James Leck will share the key ingredients of a successful, collaborative, creative writer/editor relationship as they take you through the process of turning a manuscript into a book. James and Marianne hope that in addition to learning what the various stages of editing are, participants will come away with an appreciation for the work of editors and an enthusiasm for the entire editing process.
