Session 2 of our Writers Retreat will be presented by Kristina Stanley at 10:15am
Self-Editing for Writers with Kristina Stanley
Sharing a draft of your novel for the first time can be scary. So, why would you share your work before you’ve revised your first draft, making sure it’s as good as you can make it before anyone else reads it?
You wouldn’t. That’s why you perform a story edit.
To make sharing easier, this workshop will teach you how to edit your own story on a scene-by-scene basis. We’ll focus on character, plot, and setting.
To get the most out of the workshop, please bring one scene from a story you’re working on.
