Most writers know their manuscript will require a structural edit, but have little understanding of what this means.
This three-day course explains structural editing, what role it plays in manuscript development, how to go about it, and how to survive it.
Breaking the process into stages, participants will learn strategies and tools to apply to their own work, with the course format guiding writers as they work on their current draft.
Who is it for?
The course is for writers of fiction and narrative non-fiction with a complete draft of their manuscript who are willing to explore the challenging inner terrain that underlies critical engagement with one’s own work.
