    You’ve written “The End” to your story and now you’re ready to send it out. Wait! Not so fast. You need to spend some time making certain that your final product is the best you can offer, whether you are sending it off to an editor or to publish the book yourself.
    . Learn how to edit your story to get rid of unnecessary words, to add stronger verbs and to improve your dialogue. Discover how to make certain your chapters end at the right place and how hooks can keep the reader going. Find out how to polish your manuscript before it heads out the door.
    And don’t forget those pesky grammar issues that can often be overlooked. Get a quick primer on grammar and punctuation while also checking for overwriting or flabby construction. Get help on sentence structure and making certain your writing comes to life on the page. By the end of this class, your story should be well on the way to being prepared to send out to editors and agents.
