Join visiting author Betsy Hanson for a one-day manuscript editing and revising workshop.

Author Betsy Hanson will share what she has learned about prose craft, including:
Streamlining beginnings
Developing "hooks" and "cliffs"
Consistency of setting
Timelines
Crafting character-specific dialog
Checking for historic accuracy
Formatting manuscript for submission
Writing samples for contests/grants.
Tips for preparing to write a novel

This is not intended as a time for sharing manuscripts, but will instead provide writers with tools to help them improve their work on their own.

The workshop will take place on Saturday, September 21st, beginning at 10:30am - 2:30pm with a 30 min. lunch break.

This workshop is free and open to all writers. Please pre-register with Malia Sanford (malia@lopezlibrary.org) to secure a spot in the class.
