The Art of the Sentence: A Practical Workshop

with Author Amy Gottlieb

 

When agents and editors comb through submissions, they are not necessarily looking for the most amazing story; more often than not, they want to find an author's authentic voice and be carried away by powerful and elegant prose. When we tap into the lyric possibilities of the sentences we write, we bring our prose to life in surprising and transformative ways. In this workshop, we'll analyze some remarkable sentences and look at ways to improve our own. Bring in a paragraph from your work in progress and be prepared to workshop some of your sentences.

Revision Techniques: Creative Approaches that Work

with Author Amy Gottlieb

The gap between a final draft and a submittable manuscript for a literary agent or editor is immense. Without thoughtful and painstaking revision, your manuscript won't make it to the top of an agent's or editor's reading pile. Revision is not only an essential aspect of the writing process, it is an art form onto itself. In this workshop, we'll explore creative revision techniques that are flexible, inspirational, and effective.
