Course Objective

All good writing is rewriting. In this masterclass, we will look at the techniques great writers use to recraft and finesse their work; then we will find those that truly work for us. We will learn to identify the sins of bad writing that dilute the wow factor. But editing your own work requires precision. The art of the edit is being able to identify the problems, clarify the target audience and theme and then, armed with that understanding identify the strategies to fix the offending parts. In the course, we will build a repertoire of editing skills. Using those skills will make the writing shine.

Course Content

                   The masterclass will include:
- Analysing pieces of writing and understanding the craft elements: Structure, style, POV, characterisation, dialogue, plot, showing and not telling  and more
- Strategies and self-editing techniques 
- Participants are asked to send 6-8 pages of their writing  by 30 May. The writing can be of any genre including fiction or non-fiction. There will be individual feedback for each participant.
