Red Ink: Essential Self-Editing Strategies to Use ...

Presented by Pikes Peak Writers at PPLD - East Library

In an agent’s eyes, what sets a polished manuscript apart from a work in progress? And what makes the most successful indie novels stand out from the crowd? This workshop will focus on practical tips to ensure you are putting your best work forward—whether you are submitting to agents or preparing to self-publish. You will learn how to step back and recognize issues in your own writing or that of critique partner, with specific techniques to address the most common pitfalls. Participants are encouraged to bring the first five pages of their manuscript to workshop during the class. Please bring TWO copies.

Presenter Anita Mumm is a freelance novel editor. Her home base is Colorado, but as a travel junkie, she sometimes gets carried away. Previously, she worked in submissions & foreign rights at Nelson Literary Agency. You can read more about her work at www.anitamumm.com and on her blog, Word Café, where she shares advice on writing and publishing.
