June Program in Denver
Anatomy of an Edit Part 1:
From First Draft to Submission

Presented by Anne Marie
Saturday, June 18, 2016, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Sam Gary Library
2961 Roslyn St. Denver, CO 80238

This presentation is a 10-step road map any writer can follow from their novel’s first draft to submission to agents or editors. It touches on “big picture” items like character arc, plot, pacing, and theme. Suggestions for critique partners/groups and free resources for writers are included. It may be helpful to writers who are active critique partners and want to take their group to the next level. MORE INFO
