Self-Editing Your Novel.

Encapsulating their acclaimed online Self-Edit Your Novel course, Debi Alper and Emma Darwin will discuss how you can make your plot more compelling, your characters more vivid and their voices more engaging, so that every word counts.

Industry Guest: We'll also have a hands-on editor from a publishing house to give a good balance between what makes a good story and what publishers are looking for, as well as an overview of the whole editing process.

Debi Alper is the author of gritty, funny, contemporary novels with Orion - and a hugely respected tutor and book doctor with the Writers' Workshop. Emma Darwin is that rare thing: an acclaimed literary author who's graced the bestseller lists. Her fiction has been shortlisted and longlisted for numerous prizes and sold extensively overseas. Her latest book, Get Started in Writing Historical Fiction, (John Murray/Teach Yourself) will be published in October.
