Writer In Motion

Have you ever wondered how a piece of writing goes from the first draft to the final product?

Writer In Motion aims to lift the veil on the writing process!

#WriterInMotion is a 7-week collaborative project with (now) 24 writers and 4 professional editors revealing the in-depth iterative process each participating writer goes through in crafting a short story.

You’ll get to see each writer’s:

  • Drafting process
  • Story Analysis
  • Self-Editing Techniques
  • Incorporation of critiques and editing suggestions
  • Every draft – from unedited first draft, to polished final product

The process involves four rounds of editing:

  • Self-editing.
  • Incorporating feedback from two of the 22 participating writers.
  • Incorporating feedback from one of the four professional editors.
  • Final edits.
