What you'll learn in this writing class:

Are you an outliner or a pantser? Do you plan your book or pilot by feel? Finding the right approach for you requires a method rather than a formula. The Book Architecture Method has helped bestselling writers transform messy manuscripts into polished books in three drafts. Published and aspiring writers will learn how to create a complex narrative by knowing the draft you’re in and what to do between drafts. Handouts.

You will learn how to:

  • Know what draft you are in so you know how to approach your material.
  • Use progressive outlines between drafts to stay focused.
  • Find your book’s theme and use it to revise.
  • Fix your work by separating it into scenes.
  • Enable your story to create a fulfilling emotional pay-off.
Stuart Horwitz is founder and principal of Book Architecture, a firm of independent editors based in Providence and Boston. Book Architecture’s clients have had bestsellers in fiction and nonfiction, and have appeared on Oprah!, Today, The Tonight Show, and in the most prestigious journals in their fields. The Writer named Blueprint Your Bestseller: Organize and Revise any Manuscript with The Book Architecture Method, one of 2013’s best books about writing, www.BookArchitecture.com.
