A Writer’s Journey: The Essentials of Editing with Danielle Wood

So you’ve finished your first draft, but how do you turn the manuscript into something that sparkles enough to catch the eye of a publisher? In this workshop you’ll learn how to identify problems and weaknesses with your manuscript and build up its strengths with exercises, practical examples and the opportunity to ask all those puzzling questions.

Danielle Wood is a versatile writer of fiction and non-fiction, books for adults and books for children. Her first novel was the Vogel Award-winning The Alphabet of Light and Dark, and she has written two books of fairy-tale themed fiction – Rosie Little’s Cautionary Tales for Girls and Mothers Grimm – and the biography Housewife Superstar: the very best of Marjorie Bligh. Her work is published abroad in the USA, Italy, Russia and the Netherlands.
