Victoria is back with her much praised Editing Your Prose course. So many people were asking about it we decided to run it again! See what past participants have said:
|“I was a bit stuck on what type of editing the second draft of my novel needed – now I’m not.”|
|“It more than met my expectations – covering material I hadn’t thought about – despite my own professional editing experience. [...] I now understand things I’ve been told before, that didn’t entirely make sense. It’s improved my planning process almost beyond recognition.”|
The first course of action when writing is to write. To get your ideas down in, at least theoretically, a cohesive and plausible way. But when you’re done with that, it’s time to give your work some tough love. This six-week editing course will go over various aspects of self-editing, including point of view, structural gaps and how to fill them, word choice, dialogue and basic editing tips on both line and structural levels. You will be working on your own manuscript, and the instructor will use examples from everyone’s work in order to show, not tell.
Victoria Oldham is a professional editor with a publishing house in New York, and has published more than sixty articles and short stories.
