Structural editing involves recognising what is working well in your manuscript and what needs further attention. This workshop offers practical strategies and tools to guide writers through the process.
Most writers have some sort of notion that their manuscript will require a structural edit, but often they have little understanding of what this actually means. Structural editing involves looking at the story as a whole and considering aspects such as story arc, expression of themes, character development, point of view, back-story, voice and pacing. It concerns recognising what is working well in the manuscript and what needs further attention.
This workshop is designed for writers of fiction and narrative non-fiction who have a complete draft of their manuscript. We will look at the role structural editing plays in manuscript development and discuss creative ways to approach it. The workshop will include practical strategies and tools to guide writers through this process, and explore how to traverse the sometimes challenging inner terrain that underlies critical engagement with your own work.
