The Process

We can work with writers at any stage of the self-publishing process – after an initial draft is complete, or from the very beginning, helping a writer take that first spark of an idea and transform it into a fully developed story. With one-on-one guidance from an ECP teacher, these students learn to look at their work from the perspective of a reader and revise and edit their stories accordingly.

The Focus

The hallmark of our rigorous writing workshops, this revision and editing process not only prepares students’ writing for publication but also teaches young writers the invaluable skills of looking critically at their own work, considering how to improve their writing and incorporating feedback. During the editing stages, students also develop their technical writing skills as they proofread their stories, review relevant grammar rules and correct their most common errors. After all, we expect that the stories and books we publish are only the first of many for these aspiring authors!
