The Final Polish

Making Your Prose Serve Your Story: Even if your story is compelling, well paced, and gripping, what sets a good book apart from a great one can be the prose itself. With concrete, specific examples, authors will learn how to tighten up the flab of useless verbiage, unnecessary modifiers, dueling descriptions, spoon-feeding, and more to make their style as tight as their storytelling. Plenty of specific examples and optional “live edits” help attendees see firsthand how to apply these techniques to their own WIPs.
