Learn the ins and outs of editing during this one-day workshop!

Accomplished editor Jennifer Silva Redmond will explain and demonstrate different types of editing. Learn what a content edit is, what a line edit is, and what exactly a copyeditor does. Whether you are reworking a project, cleaning up a finished book for submission, or planning on self-publication–this workshop is for you. You’ll also learn whether you need an editor–and how to work with one if you do. Bring a sample of your writing, and come prepared for some “hands on” editing.
