Abstract:

In this program, dedicated authors including A. Scott Berg, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Isobelle Carmody, Venero Armanno, and Thomas Keneally explore the ways in which writers deal with fatigue, rejection, and uncertainty in order to sustain their enthusiasm over the years it often takes to write a book and then find a publisher. In addition, they address three core issues involving the mechanics of writing: how to choose a narrative stance, how to develop a style, and how to revise that monolithic first draft-"You need to rework and rework and rework," says Carmody.
