IN PERSON Novel Surgery
Revision is not editing or polishing. It is surgery. Come to this 8-week course with your “finished” manuscript prepared to analyze its strengths and weaknesses, rebuild theme and character arcs, ask tough questions about logic and motivation, and cut, add, and move scenes around for greatest punch.
This class takes place in person at the Alexandra Writers’ Centre in Calgary.
