The Last Draft?
In this one-hour session delivered via Zoom, which will take the form of a short talk followed by an online discussion with participants, novelist James Robertson will discuss the process of redrafting a long piece of fiction. For him, the first draft is always the hardest part of writing a book: after that the real fun begins. But what are you aiming to achieve when you work through several drafts of your work? Is it about fine-tuning or major reconstruction? James will give advice on the essential elements of redrafting, and a list of tips to make your finished work as good as it can be.
James Robertson has published six novels, including Joseph Knight, The Testament of Gideon Mack and And the Land Lay Still, and four short-story collections, most recently 365 Stories which this year became part of an on-line collaborative project with musician Aidan O’Rourke, viewable at www.three-six-five.net
