Workshop

WIP It Into Shape

Fri 30 Sep , 1.00pm – 2.00pm AEST

Zoom
Closed Captions

Join Justina Ashman as we dive in deep into finishing that dreaded Work in Progress (WIP). How does one finish that crucial first draft? Is there a knack to redrafting and editing? What does it mean to ‘finish’ a piece of writing? Participants can share strategies for approaching editing their own work, finding beta readers/critique partners, and learn techniques to help them take that draft to a polished, publishable piece.

Workshop Reservation

Our workshops have a maximum capacity of 20 people. Please complete reservation to make sure you don't miss out.

Support NYWF
The National Young Writers’ Festival is a non-profit organisation made by and for young artists to help foster a sense of community and allow young writers to connect, share skills and hone their craft. We pride ourselves on paying all writers programmed for the festival but we are reliant on government funding and philanthropic support to make our festival happen. Your donation allows us to continue supporting young artists, increase the number of writers we are able to program, and improve our capacity and resources to hold high quality events.

NYWF is a registered non-profit, so your donation (above $2) is also tax-deductible.
