In this one-week intensive master class, bestselling author and teacher Heather Webb helps you elevate your story or manuscript to new heights. First, assess where your story/manuscript stands (from a kind, wise professional’s perspective). Then, in work sessions each day, learn how to transform characters from decent to dynamic; openings from ho-hum to humming; structure, style and voice from average to awesome.
You will be encouraged to share pages and to give and get feedback. You will get what you need to heat up your writing and revising over the summer!
Heather Webb’s essay Leveling Up: How to Harness Revision to Make the Good Even Better was published by Writer’s Digest in the craft collection Author in Progress.
