This online workshop is designed to help writers of both fiction and nonfiction to develop strategies for editing their work and getting it published. 

Geared to both beginner and intermediate writers, the workshop will

  • Review the fundamentals of narrative prose,
  • Explore ways to refine one’s writing through redrafting and editing, and
  • Discuss how to submit to publishers or magazines.

Each participant will have the opportunity to workshop one piece of writing (up to 4,000 words). Over the eight weeks of the workshop, we will discuss each participant’s work in a friendly, respectful, and inclusive manner.

We will also review the key components of narrative prose such as voice, character, setting, pacing, time, structure, and language. The last weeks will deal with strategies for editing, redrafting, and revising and for determining where and how to submit works for publication.

Participants will leave the workshop with a toolkit for pursuing artistic excellence and a bolstered sense of confidence.
