WEDNESDAYS, MARCH 4–MARCH 18 | Save thousands of dollars hiring professional editors by learning to edit your own work! As a freelance book editor of 16 years, I see the same mistakes over and over in manuscripts. 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 four-week workshop. Prepare to submit 10 pages of your work.
This is an online class. Your instructor will tell you how that works.
