Starting Monday, March 18, and going until Friday, March 22, David Farland is presenting his Novel Rewriting Workshop in Dallas at the Ramada Inn on LBJ Freeway.

What is the Novel Rewriting Workshop?

Farland’s Novel Rewriting Workshop is a week-long intensive class on how to edit and rewrite your novel to take it to the next level, the publishing level. This workshop will teach how to do triage editing, where to select scenes or story lines to add to the work, delete from the novel, or change dramatically. Attendees will also learn how to do line edits to improve the quality and clarity of their work, voice edits to make their narrator and characters sound consistent, and do syllabic edits to greatly increase the pacing of their novel, and so on.

David Farland, aka David Wolverton, is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling author who has penned nearly fifty science fiction and fantasy novels for both adults and children. Along the way, he has also worked as the head judge for one of the world’s largest writing contests, as a creative writing instructor, as a videogame designer, as a screenwriter, and as a movie producer.

Farland is best known for his hit series The Runelords, The Golden Queen series, and his young adult fantasy Ravenspell series, and many more. Farland also has several books on writing: Million Dollar Outlines, Write That Novel, and his latest, Drawing on the Power of Resonance.
