Manuscript Polishing Kit at the NSW Writers’ Centre

Preparing a manuscript for publication can be daunting but it needn’t be. Gaining some knowledge about what publishers are looking for and how to add that extra edge and polish can make a difference.

A short weekend course at the NSW Writers’ Centre offers an opportunity to review your manuscript in preparation for submitting to publishers.

This course is not for beginners but for those who have already completed several drafts of a manuscript and are seriously ready to critique and edit their work before sending it off to publishers.

Participants should be prepared to give and receive constructive comments and feedback.

Brush up on how to review a work objectively; how to avoid common pitfalls; how to enhance the best features of a fiction narrative; how to edit and polish a work of fiction and how to format and submit a manuscript to publishers.
