As the July deadline for submission approaches, we’re offering a free Editing Workshop to help you polish your stories.
Date: Thursday, 21 June, 2018
Venue: Tabor Adelaide, 181 Goodwood Road, Millswood.
7:00pm – 7:30 pm Editing Class
(to be live streamed on the Stories of Life Facebook page)
Mark Worthing will be speaking on editing fundamentals. Then Pete Court and James Cooper will demonstrate how to add finesse to a story.
Sue Jeffrey has kindly given us an early draft of her story, Lucky Underwear (draft). As an exercise, you can edit her draft, and compare it with the audio recording of her final version, the version that won the 2016 Tabor College of Higher Education Short Award.
Then come along on the night, or watch via Facebook, to see how Pete and James would have approached it.
7:30 – 8:15 pm Small Group Work
(only available to those who can attend in person)
If you’ve written your story, or part of it, bring it along for feedback from experienced writers in a supportive environment. If you’re stuck with an aspect of your story, someone might be able to help you find a solution.
Note: If you’ve have already submitted you story, but wish to resubmit as a result of this workshop, you may do so at no extra cost by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with:
- first name and last name
- original title
- re-edited file
