Editing will often not be a friend to the creative side of your brain. The creative side may have helped you write the raw first draft and allowed you to spread your wordful wings into the experimental side of writing. But now it is time for your logical mind to rein everything back in for a critical assessment and to make your work publishable.

Share your work, meet others and enjoy the afternoon as you are taken through the different aspects of how to write a story that will not only be your voice and preferred style, but also one that readers will enjoy reading so that it is publishable if you wish to approach a publisher one day.

Events will be listed via the below pages:
