Beyond the First Draft with Sergio Troncoso
July 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00pm on Thursday, repeating until August 16, 2018
You have finished the first draft of your short story or novel chapter. What do you do now to take it to the next level? This workshop will offer practical advice to help you revise your work. We will focus on identifying the essence of your fiction, reviewing the narrative for its ups and downs, and analyzing and fixing problems with voice, character, dialogue, and setting. Each writer will receive specific and practical critiques to create tailored strategies for rewriting manuscripts. The class will work collaboratively on exercises to sharpen writing skills. We will also read accomplished writers to study their craft as well as their practical suggestions.
