Every writer wants to get their work published, but literary agents and publishers report that the most common mistake writers make is to submit their manuscripts before they’re ready. This workshop will help you avoid this mistake.
You will learn
- about the importance of establishing a regular writing practice
- how to approach drafting and redrafting your work
- where to find your tribe
- how to give and receive feedback
- and how to identify your market.
Participants are encourage to bring pens and paper, or a laptop, for talking notes.
This workshop is presented in partnership with Macedon Ranges Shire and is supported by the Grace Marion Wilson Trust through the Small Regional Grants Fund.
