Let me help you with a four-week course to get your manuscript prepared for publication. Join me as I teach you the ins and outs of creating the perfect story at Red @ 28th in NoDa.
Lesson One:

In the first session, we’ll go over story telling techniques and write from different prompts to get you started.
Home work: Create a synopsis for your novel and write at least one chapter.
Lesson Two:
 Outlining your novel
How to write and find the best outlining technique for your style of writing and why you need to outline your novel. What happens when your story deviates from the outline and how to fix it.
Lesson Three:
Editing
Writers need editors, even before you get a publishing contract. What to look for in an editor and why having a professional editor is important. The difference in copy editing and line editing.
Lesson Four:
Time for publication
How do you want to be published? Do you want to create an e-book, self-publish or find a traditional publisher?  How to find a literary agent and avoid predators.
