So You Want to … Shape Your Writing

10 April @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$38.01 – $53.84

Learn how to approach your writing with an editorial eye, taking the raw material and shaping it into a compelling narrative. Perfect for writers of all experience levels looking to improve their self-editing skills.

You will learn:

  • Bugs – Getting rid of pesky words
  • Thin canvas – Saying more with less
  • Grumpy nanny – Shaping your characters
  • Clipped – Tightening your dialogue
  • Blinkers off – Finding new eyes.

To form something that feels right, the feeling ‘right’ is an awareness that can be trained and developed. We don’t ‘just know’ – we learn to ride the shape of the text, to listen to its music, to successfully render a vision that is the work in its best form.
