Organize and Revise any Manuscript with the Book Architecture Method
This workshop will introduce writers to the Book Architecture Method, a process for organization and revision that has helped bestselling writers transform their messy manuscripts into polished books, signing with top literary agencies and sealing deals with coveted publishing houses. An engaging presentation will provide examples of the Book Architecture Method in action, alternating with in-depth exercises. This workshop assumes nothing of a writer’s previous knowledge of technique, nor how much of their manuscript is complete. Accomplished and aspiring writers alike will leave with the confidence that they can create a compelling book-length narrative.
