Even experienced writers make mistakes, but good writers learn to avoid the errors commonly made by novices that turn off editors, publishers, and readers. This workshop will cover a wide range of issues and provide hands-on exercises to help you identify flaws in your writing and learn how to fix them. Topics will include story, characterization, point of view, and writing mechanics. You will come away with an understanding of practical ways to improve your writing as well as some handy hacks, checklists, and resources.
