Taking Your Book From Draft to Divine
Presented by Michelle Helliwell

For many writers, revisions is where the magic happens...but how do you approach it? Do you really have to kill your darlings? This workshop will give you an overview of how the editing process works, and the mindset you need to dig in and create the best story you can.

For this workshop, it may be most helpful for you to have a project in mind that you're working on for general discussion about what your next steps might be.
