This one-off workshop will help you get your written work ready for submission, and look at what to do next.
For writers just beginning the process of sending their work out into the big, wide world, the idea of editing and submitting can be scary - but it doesn’t have to be.
In this workshop, you’ll look at various techniques for making sure your work is the best it can be, and how to approach editors and agents when the time comes.
Take the pain out of editing and the mystery out of query letters as you get your work ready to send out and look at where to send it when it’s ready to go.
New writers are very welcome, but participants should have completed at least one piece of creative writing (short story or longer).
Please bring an excerpt of around 1500 words to the workshop.
