Description

Structural Editing for Writers with Laurel Cohn

Most writers know their manuscript will require a structural edit, but have little understanding of what this means. This workshop explains structural editing, what role it plays in manuscript development, how to go about it, and how to survive it. Laurel Cohn offers strategies and tools to guide writers through the process, and explores the challenging inner terrain that underlies critical engagement with your own work. For writers of fiction and narrative non-fiction who have a complete draft of their manuscript.

Format

Workshop for beginner and intermediate writers. More information on program formats and level definitions can be found here.
