Novel Revision: Practical Tips for Rewrites

Taught by - Leave your thoughts

Finishing even a single draft of a book is a huge accomplishment. But now you must see your manuscript through multiple revisions and drafts. No one writes the perfect book in one shot. You must open yourself up to making changes, listening to feedback, and understanding critiques if you want to reach readers in a meaningful way.

In this course from the editors behind #RevPit, you will be shown how to dive into the revision process and methodically prepare your book for publication.

What you'll learn in this course

  • Getting some distance from your manuscript
  • Understanding phases of revision
  • Creating a reverse outline
  • Self-editing
  • Working with critique partners, beta readers, and sensitivity readers
  • Utilizing feedback
  • Knowing when you’re ready for an editor
  • Getting query- or publication-ready

Students can only enroll in one class at a time. If you’re currently taking a course, please wait until it has finished before signing up for a new one.
