Workshops Presented by Edwina

The Dreaded “E” Word        

Getting the words on the page is only the first step. Next, time to edit. The ability to self–edit is an important component to polishing your manuscript. Any writer who is serious about publication, needs to work hard to learn how to self-edit.

So, how do you learn? The same way you learn to write: practice, read critically, and pay attention to outside critiques.

This workshop will introduce you to some basic—and not so basic—self-editing tips to help take your manuscript to the next level.
