Presenter Pippa Carron

Venue: Seabreeze Room
Regardless of the type of writing you do, what stage of writing you are at, and whether you intend to publish what you have written, your writing will benefit from an in-depth understanding of what it is that editors do. Self-editing is a skill that everyone can learn, and improving these skills will help you write more efficiently and more effectively, and have more fun along the way. Plus learning to self-edit will definitely save you money on hiring a professional editor if you do want to submit your manuscript for an appraisal or to a publisher for consideration, or if you plan to self-publish. This workshop covers the essentials of self-editing for both fiction and non-fiction writers over the four stages of editing: developmental editing, substantive editing, copyediting and proof–reading.
