Self-Editing for Fiction Writers

June 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Over the course of her career as a literary agent, Elizabeth noticed that many manuscripts being rejected suffered similar, easy-to-solve problems. As a result, she began keeping a list of these problems, hoping to one day share this feedback with writers struggling to understand rejections. Based on her newly released The Author’s Checklist: An Agent’s Guide to Developing and Editing Your Manuscript, this workshop will cover more than 50 points for consideration before submitting to an agent, editor, or indie publisher, such as how to sharpen dialogue and prose, improving characterization, complicating plot, and much more. Elizabeth will also lead a brief Q&A segment at the end of the workshop.
