One of the great joys of doing the RMIT Professional Writing and Editing Associate Degree program is the connections made. As a part of on of the Developing a Writing Project course, we have masterclasses with published graduates of the program. They are student-run panels with the author and graduate talking about their process, book and anything else on writing.
Sharpen the pencils and the focus
It’s time to sharpen the pencils and the focus. Classes begin for me tonight. This semester I’m tackling Advance Manuscript Editing and Developing a Writing Project. I have the pleasure of having Stephanie Holt, Editor extraordinaire, and Olga Lorenzo, author and, I have heard, brilliant teacher.
I’ll have the pleasure also of attending Masterclasses with the likes of Sian Prior, Silvia Kwon, Di Websdale-Morrissey (she’s great, I’ve had her previously), Kate Richards, Toni Jordan (also had previously and great teacher), Chris Womersley and Ilka Tampke.
I’m looking forward to really sharpening my nearly complete second draft of my manuscript and gaining insights from this great line-up and class mates.
It is looking to be a brilliant semester. I’m just hoping my daily migraines will settle so I can concentrate.
