Participants will work together on a writing sample, and then apply a range of tactics to their drafts: line edits that bring sentences to life and fresh looks at character, theme, and plot to bring their writing to the next level.
While most exercises focus on fiction, writers in all genres are welcome. Participants need to bring something to the party, at least a few pages. Whether it’s a stalled project or a work in progress, bring it in and find new ways to make it shine!
