Self Editing For Fiction Writers
How To Edit yourself into Print
A six week course by award winning writer and editor, Gloria Nye of Spiral Press and Eve Publishing. Writing and editing are different skills requiring different mind sets. In this course, you will learn specific principles of editing to apply to different sections of your writing: show and tell, characterization, point of view, dialogue mechanics, character’s voice, and interior monologue. Improving these six important areas of your writing will dramatically increase the effectiveness of your short story or novel and give your writing a professional edge. Participants will bring two pages of their writing each week for constructive critiquing and feedback.
Victoria Centre in Fergus, Sept 11 - October 18, 2014, Thursdays, 9:30 to 11:30am (6 weeks) Cost for the course is $69 for members, and $75 for non-members.
