Using her extensive experience of developmental and line editing for publishers and private clients, Michelle Buckman will provide concrete examples of the entire scope of what an editor sees when looking at manuscripts. Beginning with examples of changing passable writing to excellent prose, then following through to the overall plot and character development of a novel, as well as examining the theme and takeaway of a nonfiction submission, this workshop explains what an editor sees when you submit a manuscript. Michelle will post both fiction and nonfiction samples with detailed explanations of what needs to be done to improve the writing. This workshop will send you back to your own manuscript with a critical eye aimed at making your work shine.
In this workshop, we'll cover:
Study the writing craft, learn about the business of publishing your work, and meet with writers, publishers and agents across the country.
