Surrey International Writer’s Conference Master Class


On the Road to Alaska

Autumn is not a quiet time in this writer’s life. Homework.

One of the SIWC Master Classes, Welcome to Your Rewrite presented by Robert J Ray, is based on his book The Weekend Novelists Rewrites the Novel .   He  sent his prospective students homework! How neat is that?   I have a better idea about class content, and suspect it will be three hours of  aha moments.

The bit about weekends?  He means doing nothing else … both Saturday and Sunday, minimum ten hours, dedicated writing labor.   I am excited about this class.  Having completed two manuscripts, I needed a method for revision.  His book walks the writer through the process.  Reading his book (not finished) and doing the homework provided a glimpse at the content of the class and I hope to come home, ready to tackle the big job of a rewrite, learning … always learning.
