Mary Ann de Stefano

Mary Ann de Stefano offers a FREE workshop from 10 a.m. – noon on Saturday, May 23rd at the Melanson room on the third floor of the Winter Park Library.

From First to Final Draft: Opening the Door: In On Writing, Stephen King endorses the advice he received from a favorite writing teacher: “Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open.” In this session, you’ll learn about the various stages of manuscript development, when to go it alone, and when to share your work in progress. You’ll take away ideas for approaching revision solo and tips to help you receive the best kind of support and feedback from an editor, beta readers, or a writing group.
