A DEEP DIVE INTO SELF-EDITING
SCWA’s January Craft Shop is ready for members and nonmembers to take a Deep Dive into SELF-EDITING, a perfect way to follow NaNoWriMo and to refresh all of us wrestling chapters of our works-in-process.
We sometimes think of self-editing as a pass through the manuscript to fix grammar and wording. It is much more. A self-edit can also examine the bones of your project, challenge the premise, and check to see that you have delivered the message you promised.
What better way to start 2021 than with a hands-on workshop with Pam Sheppard, a familiar face at all SCWA meetings, and a regular contributor to the antics on SCWA’s Facebook group. Pam will take you through the four kinds of edits, demonstrate examples of each, and show you how they will take your work to the next level. She will also talk about working with critique groups, beta readers, and professional editors.
We’ll record the session and leave lots of time for Q&A.
