Literary Editing Workshop

Open to writers of poetry, short stories, fiction, and translators
Limited to 20 participants only

Do you need help with your works of poetry, fiction writing or English translation? Are you looking for editorial input and guidance to make your writing better? Then this Literary Editing Workshop is for you!

Noted writer and translator Shelly Bryant will take the participants through the editing process, and guide them to improve their manuscript’s structure, narrative, and flow. They will also gain a better understanding of the evolution the written work undergoes from submission to publication.

In addition, participants will receive valuable feedback and critique on their manuscripts, and be given the opportunity to finesse their works over two evenings.

Open to writers and translators with English manuscripts of their poetry, fiction writing and translation.

*Dinner is not provided.
