Finishing, Revising and Publishing Young Adult Novel


Course description

Do you have a first draft or a half-written novel for pre-teen (aged 9 to 12) or teen readers? Need a boost from a supportive group of writers to help you get it completed, revised and ready to submit? This course will use a combination of facilitated discussions and workshops to help you get there.

We will look at aspects of the novel (in particular: character, story, pacing and voice) and help students identify the strengths and potential of their book, as well as the areas that still need work.

We will discuss revision and the editing process, and use workshops and hands-on exercises to help you revise your work. Finally, we will discuss how to research publishing markets and submit your work for publication.

This is an advanced writing workshop designed for students who have already taken one of Robin’s courses or an equivalent course, and have a novel manuscript completed or well in progress. Contact Preston Randall ( if you have questions about whether this course is suitable for you.
