ONLINE The Writing Blues: An Editing Workshop
You got a story. You got a boy, you got a sunset, you got a plot twist. But your agent is “out of the office,” your friends don’t have time to read, and your mom is starting to get migraines. Has the world gone mad? What should you do? Hang up your sweatpants and surf Tofino for a year? Maybe. Or maybe you gotta get voice. Maybe you gotta get style and precision. Maybe you got to hammer that thing till it rears up and barks at you. Maybe you gotta take a polishing course.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
