Good writing is really good editing. But what does that entail and how do you do it? During this session, participants will gain a set of tools and questions to aid in the redrafting process. Not everyone can have the luxury of working with a dramaturg, but you can certainly train yourself to give yourself constructive criticism. Please note this workshop is intended for participants who have already written the first draft of a piece of work.
This workshop will cover:
-Structure and style
-Different kinds of narratives
-Ensuring your story has clarity
-Character development and voice
-Text and subtext
-Authorial voice versus character voice.
