Saturday, September 20, 2014 - 10:15am

Where

Glenview Presbyterian Church
1 Glenview Ave
Toronto, ON

Details

If you want to refine your story-telling skills and cut the time you will need to spend editing, this workshop is for you. You'll learn how to step back from a manuscript in order to find – and fix – flaws in your plot, structure, characterization and style. You'll learn how to rethink, rework and rewrite so that your manuscript will live up to your vision.

Special option: Participants are invited to bring a piece of their own writing (though you don't have to!) If you do bring a piece, bring 3 copies of something short (1,000 words absolute maximum, though 750 words works better).
