This autumn Pennwriters Inc. online workshops presents…
HOW TO BE YOUR OWN BEST FICTION EDITOR
INSTRUCTOR: Lisa D. Kastner
DATE: October 1-22, 2009 (3 weeks, 2 sessions per week)
COST: $25 ($30 non-Pennwriters members)
Have you ever written a short story or novel and wondered if it was done? Have you made revisions and thought you were finished, but then realized once you started to send the piece out that it needed work?
In this online course, Lisa Kastner will pull from her own writing experience as well as proven prescriptions of industry greats such as Noah Lukeman, Sol Stein, Tim Esaias, and Nancy Zafris. Even if you participate in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November, you will discover how to make whatever novel you produce publishable. You will learn:
* New ways to look at your fiction and creative non-fiction writing with a fresh eye
* Clearly define your next revision steps to make your work sing
* Save yourself time and manuscript rejection
* Eliminate unneeded sentences and words
* Easily analyze characters and plots like a pro
* Get a clear roadmap to the revision process
As an added bonus with the course, you’ll receive a FREE Editing Resource List of the best advice websites on improving and revising your writing!
Revise your story like an editor and get it published fast. ENROLL NOW.
(Note: This is not a grammar and punctuation class. This course will look at fiction writing like an editor, not like a proof reader.)
