Poet and teacher, Leeza von Alpen, will explore just how to do this with eager writers in this two hour workshop full of insightful tips. From understanding the tedious intricacies of punctuation symbols to impress editors, to ensuring your scene is gripping in sentence structure, word choice and imagery, to the layout of your narrative, this workshop will be packed with useful information to ensure you become equipped with the know-how in order to polish your manuscript to the best of your ability.
