How many drafts does your novel or memoir really need? What common mistakes do agents see that you can fix before sending out your work? How can you improve your writing without spending big bucks on an editor? You’ll learn why all great books start with SUCK, when to use (and violate!) structure to find plot holes and drama dips, and how all books are mysteries. From big-picture to line-editing, we’ll cover the Seven Drafts, and what to do in each draft to write – and finish! – a submission-ready manuscript. Allison will also project pages from some courageous volunteers, and show the professional editing process in action.

The tutor: Allison K Williams has edited and coached authors to deals with Big Five publishers and inspired thousands of writers with her Brevity blogs. She leads Rebirth Your Book, a series of finish-your-book writing retreats around the world.

Age: 18+
