Another exciting season of writing workshops on Chicago's North Shore.
December 5: Amy Gail Hansen
Fiction Prescription—Rx for a Healthy Manuscript
Is your novel or short story suffering from common ailments, like underdeveloped characters and uninspired dialogue? Is it deficient in tension but excessive in exposition? Then it's time for a manuscript checkup.
Author of The Butterfly Sister, Amy will explore the most common fiction "disorders" and how to heal them. With hands-on writing exercises, tips and tricks, this workshop will help restore your manuscript and get it publication ready. For the most valuable workshop experience, participants should bring a 3-5 page excerpt from a short story or novel. Amy accepted manuscripts from members only until November 21.
Amy is a former English teacher and freelance journalist. She lives in the northwest suburbs of Chicago with her husband and three children and is at work on a second novel.
