Get your manuscript in tip-top shape for agents and publishers. Many manuscripts languish in agents’ and publishers’ slush piles because not enough fine-tuning has gone into the editing of the final drafts. This workshop will teach you what editors look for when polishing a manuscript and will show you techniques for improving your manuscript and getting it ready to submit to agents and publishers.
Suitable for novelists with a completed or nearly completed manuscript.
