Being an author is a multi-faceted job, from writing to editing to submitting your manuscript. In this intensive masterclass, Aleesah Darlison, an award-winning author, writing mentor and owner of Greenleaf Press, will provide an overview of the Australian publishing industry and give invaluable tips for authors.
She will work with participants on their manuscripts to target areas for improvement such as structure, voice, language, character, tension, formatting and more. Participants will read their work out for group feedback and have one-on-one manuscript appraisals with Aleesah. Tea and coffee will be provided.
Note: Two months out from the event, one manuscript is required for Aleesah's pre-reading. We will provide details closer to the time.
