Getting Beyond the First Draft: Editing Your Manuscript for Success

Spring 2017

Do you have a first draft of a manuscript (or most of a first draft) tucked away in a dark desk drawer? Or deposited in banker box in the basement? Wonderful! You are ready for the next step: revision. Whether you cranked out a novel during NaNoWriMo, or you have patches of your memoir that you are ready to stitch together, or you’ve completed the first book in the series of Tolkienesque adventures, this 6-session class will move your book forward in the revision process. Together, we will discuss revision strategies, crystallize your book concept through in-class writing exercises, and workshop key moments from your manuscript. At the end of our time together, you will have peer-feedback, a revision plan to get you beyond your first draft, and a draft of a book proposal. Together we will welcome your tome into the sunshine.
