About This Class
Join one of Wattpad's most successful writers Ali Novak for a fun, straightforward class on editing and revising your writing.
While writing a draft is a feat in itself, revising and editing your work is when your story takes shape and the real writing begins! In this 25-minute class, Ali walks through the process of polishing a manuscript for publication. She works on strengthening each part of her story, examining plot holes, pacing, and character structure — all to help you learn a set of techniques to level up your writing and make your work clean, concise, and clear.
Whether you're a writer looking to get your work published, or you just enjoy writing and want to improve your critical eye, this class will help turn your ideas and drafts into well-developed, polished stories.
This class is presented in collaboration with Wattpad, the world's largest community for readers and writers. Looking for more writing classes?
