Following the success of our sold-out London based Self-Editing workshops with tutors including Amy Liptrot, Jane Commane and Jacob Ross, we have designed a one day self-editing workshop for writers based in or near Birmingham, in association with Writing West Midlands. This workshop will be led by Birmingham based Self-Editing: A Primer author, novelist, and former publisher at Tindal Street Press, Alan Mahar.

Working on a novel? Learn how to become a more objective reader of your work in progress, or finished draft, with this day-long introduction to the art of self-editing full-length fiction. In this workshop, you will receive guidance on how to approach the editing process, including how best to identify those areas you can realistically and significantly improve yourself, ahead of submission to a professional editor, or to a literary agent or publisher. We will look at common problem areas in fiction-writing, and practical trouble-shooting techniques that you can apply to your work in progress to make sure it’s in the best shape it can be. 

This workshop is open to writers at all levels. A London full day workshop will follow in the Spring.

Booking will be open later this year.
