SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 | Save thousands of dollars hiring professional editors by learning to edit your own work. As a freelance book editor of 13 years, I see the same mistakes over and over. From exercises to improve your story arc, character development, dialogue and description, to tips for copyediting your completed manuscript, I’ll teach you how to turn your good manuscript into a great manuscript in this one-day intensive workshop. Bring a sample of your work (10 pages) and lunch. I’ll provide tea and snacks.
