From Bland to Brilliant: Developing and Revising Your Novel

Author Jenny Martin leads a class at Southlake Library to help up-and-coming authors take their writing to the next level.

Puzzling over that stack of rejections for your first (or fifteenth) novel? Not sure why your book/short story/idea isn’t working? If so, join us for an interactive session jam-packed with tons of practical tips, tricks, and ideas to make your own pages shine. Walk away with a detailed game plan to help you write, rewrite or revise a story that will hook readers and get an editor or agent’s attention.

Find this program at Southlake Town Hall on October 9th at 6 PM. Open to the public, no registration is required.
