How To Edit Your Writing- FREE SAMPLE
Are you interested in learning new approaches to editing your writing? This four-week online course will help you explore new techniques for analysis and creativity in the editing process. Books, like films, are made in the editing.
About the course
Litro published my short story Wolf Eyes in 2011 and I have not looked back since.
Get started with this short creative exercise:
- Write a first-person description of a walk through a city – an imaginary city, or a real one you’ve never been to.
- Edit it down to 50 words, to include elements of time lapse, movement and changes of feeling.
