Many book manuscripts suffer from a lack of thorough development. This can stand in the way of their potential for success, or even prevent them from being published. In this interactive session, award-winning novelist (The Cure for Death by Lightning) and writing coach Gail explores the steps and strategies of development editing that help turn a good book idea into a great book.
Participation will be limited to 15 participants, so please register in advance here. Deadline for registration is Friday, June 22, 2018.
* Payments must be made prior to the workshop. You will not be able to pay at the event.
