RWA OWL: Edit Your Own Romance Novel

In the dark about editing? Let Ebony McKenna show you how to edit your own romance manuscript and deliver a great story for your readers, with this intensive online course. These are the same techniques she used for her self-published novel, The Girl & The Ghost, and it won the RuBY!

The course will run for four weeks.

Lesson material will be made available on Moodle at the start of each week in the form of downloadable pdf booklets, building up to a comprehensive editing guidebook for participants to keep. 

Participants work at their own pace. The presenter will be available throughout the course and will respond to questions and provide feedback/evaluation via the Moodle forum. Feedback via email is an option where participants prefer.

It’s recommended that participants have a draft manuscript to work on during the course, even if it’s not finished, and allocate two or three hours a week to the course. It’s not expected that participants will completely edit their novels within the month, but will be provided with the tools to do the job in their own time.

Writers at all stages of their careers will benefit from this course.

Presenter's Bio:

Ebony McKenna is the self-published author of many young adult novels, including the charmingly funny four-part Ondine series, where a girl’s pet ferret starts talking with a Scottish accent. Her most recent novel, The Girl & the Ghost, won the Ruby for romantic elements in 2018.
She is a huge fan of structure and has presented workshops at RWA conferences and roadshows, community and neighbourhood houses and libraries.
