In this 7-week Zoom course, Y.A. author Tara Sullivan will take you on a guided tour through the complex process of improving a book-length manuscript. Each week, Tara will present on a different point of craft that will help you with your edits. Weekly topics include: goal setting, pacing, character, dialogue, setting, world-building, tone, synopsis, and beginnings and endings. Topics will build on each other, and weekly homework will encourage you to incorporate the lessons from class directly into your work in progress. Each participant will get hands-on creative and feedback time every session in relation to the weekly theme.
Additionally, each person will get (at least) one in-depth group critique of those all-important opening 10 pages. This class is best suited for those wishing to edit a complete or nearly-complete novel-length manuscript, though all are welcome.
