Turning first drafts into publishable books

GENRE: Fiction
-
The Hurst

You’ve typed ‘The End’. What next? After you’ve given yourself a pat on the back, the hard work begins: editing. We all know that means making improvements, but how, when you’ve already done your best, do you do that? This course, led by a writer and an editor, will help you work out what to cut, what to add, and what to leave alone; you’ll learn how to sharpen scenes, hone sentences, and turn your draft into publishable work. Bring the first 2,000 words of a manuscript and a 300-word synopsis.

Single room price: £800
