Event description


This workshop will cover what comes after the first draft. How do you refine that initial draft to make it the best it can be? We'll be talking detail-oriented editing tips and strategies, as well as big picture things such as point of view and how best to utilize secondary characters. The workshop will be most suited to writers who've completed a project of at least 40,000 words and have enough distance from their work to look at it with a critical eye.

About GenreCon

Delilah is in Brisbane from Nov 9-12 as a special guest of GenreCon 2017. Genrecon is a biennial Australian event that celebrates the craft of genre-fiction writing through panels, workshops and parties. It is not a fan event so much as a weekend-long socialising and networking opportunity for writers and publishing professionals united by their love of genre fiction.
