Set It Free—Getting Your Manuscript Ready For the World

October 7, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-6

You’ve spent months or years writing your novel or memoir. You’ve written and revised and revised some more. Now all you need is for that perfect agent or editor to fall in love with your writing. But how can you be sure your work is ready for submission? We’ll talk about how to determine if your work fulfills its promise to the reader and explore practical strategies for making sure your story is strong enough to stand out from the slush pile. Bring your almost-there manuscript and a willingness to look at your work with a fresh and critical gaze.

Led by Tiffany Quay Tyson, faculty member at Lighthouse Writers Workshop and author of “Three Rivers,” a finalist for both the Colorado Book Award and the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters Award for Fiction.
