    Writing IS Rewriting

    With Tiffany Reisz. "All first drafts are sh*t," said Ernest Hemingway and there's never been truer words spoken. All writers, from beginning-est beginner to the most veteran of bestsellers, all have one thing in common—they never get a book right the first time. Join Tiffany Reisz, bestselling and multi award-winning novelist, for a seminar on the art of self-editing your fiction. Even the biggest, brightest diamonds need to be cut and polished, as do the most promising works-in-progress. We will learn helpful techniques of macro- and micro- revisions.  [ALL LEVELS] [ON...

    How to Edit & Proofread Your Own Work

    With Stephanie Mojica. We will discuss ways to actually read your own work to find errors and create your own writer’s style guide. The class will go over common errors even seasoned writers make, and why spell check programs are not always reliable resources for proofreading and editing. The content applies to writers of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, stageplays, and screenplays of any length. [ALL LEVELS] [ONE-TIME CLASS] [NEW!]

    Revising the Full Manuscript

    With Alice Speilburg, Speilburg Literary Agency. You wrote a book! Or at least, a first draft of a book. You’ve workshopped key chapters and rewritten important scenes dozens of times, but when you send it out to publishers and agents, no one is biting. It’s time to tackle a revision that encompasses the manuscript as a whole. Literary Agent Alice Speilburg will review key elements to consider when revising: pacing, structure, character development, and conflict. She will work with each participant to step back, see the book as a whole, and develop a plan. If possible, p...
