Do you have a draft manuscript of adult fiction or memoir? Are you looking for feedback and tips to improve your work?
In this online course, editor Linda Funnell will provide feedback on your manuscript (up to 7200 words) plus a synopsis in an online classroom environment, enabling you to hone your skills over three months.
You’ll also give and receive peer feedback, and be able to consider the tutor’s feedback on your fellow writers’ submissions. The tutor’s feedback will focus on specific areas for each of the three submissions, as outlined below.
‘I found the feedback from Linda incredibly helpful and insightful. For me, a writer without any formal training, this course was invaluable. It shed light on my blind spots and I’m excited to move forward with my manuscript.’ – Donné
‘Linda Funnell is a great teacher. She gave very specific feedback and I have already been able to incorporate those notes into my manuscript. The peer evaluations were helpful as they gave me insight into what other readers think/feel as they read my work, and areas where I need to edit.’ – Rachel
