“After the First Draft” with Elizabeth Lyon

September 1, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


On Thursday, September 1, 2016, at Tsunami Books in Eugene, Willamette Writers hosts Elizabeth Lyon who will present “After the First Draft”. Join us!

What Happens After the First Draft?

How do you scrutinize your projects, decide whether you are on track or should pursue a different approach? Would it make sense to create a topic outline or a synopsis? Are you struggling to sort out “going indie” or seeking an agent? How do you assess structure, reacquaint yourself with characters, deepen a memoir, or identify weak areas of craft? Can journaling help? A beta reader? An editor? This talk will give you tools to step back and look at your project with fresh eyes.

About Our Speaker – Elizabeth Lyon

Elizabeth Lyon has been a book editor since 1988. She is the author of many books on how to write, revise, and market novels and nonfiction. A reviewer for The Writer magazine described Manuscript Makeover as “perhaps the most comprehensive book on revising fiction.” Long long ago, she led three weekly, for-pay critique groups in Eugene for 13 years and taught writing classes and workshops for LCC Continuing Education.
