Self-edit like a pro! Most editors and agents see common, time-consuming but fixable issues in most manuscripts they receive. When a writer can identify these elements, their work will be cleaner, more readable, and more likely to receive an acceptance from an agent or publisher. By working technically, the ‘darlings’ aren’t so hard to kill. By being mindful of writing habits and actively choosing techniques that serve the work, you can teach yourself to write better–for free.
Bring 3-5 pages of a work-in-progress on a flash drive *and* printed out, and your bravery. We’ll do some in-class editing with each other, and Allison will also do live sample-edits for some courageous volunteers.
(All pre- and post-conference workshops are optional add-ons to regular conference registration; limited space available. $49.)
