Midwifery and meddling, marketing and mending

GENRE: Fiction
Lumb Bank

This week is aimed at anyone interested in editing their own fiction, to improve or sharpen it to make it the best it can be, the most like itself. The course will be as valuable to writers just starting out as it will be to published authors. Everyone needs editing. We will get our hands dirty in your texts. We will also focus on the role of the modern editor, part brutal marketer, part creative playmate to the author. From broad structural edits to proofreading and writing copy, we will candidly share experiences of editing, and being edited.

Single room price: £750
Shared room price: £700

Grants are available to help with the course fee
