Make Your Work Tighter

Have you ever wondered . . . 
 
What will it take to get my work ready for a publisher?
 
Why does editing cost so much?
 
Is there anything I can do to bring the cost down?
 
Come to the writers' group with your writing ideas, ready to sharpen your pencils and your mind. You will be writing, reading, rewriting, and re-reading to see how you can make your work tighter. 
 
Editing costs so much because . . . come to the class to find out.
 
YES! There is something YOU can do to bring the cost down . . . come to the class to find out.
 
Join us as our speaker, Elizabeth Boerner, author liaison for Fruitbearer Publishing L.L.C, shares some insight on how to Make Your Work Tighter. Come and explore as you learn to “mind dump” and “clean up.” You are sure to walk away with writing tools that you'll be able to put into practice right away--so you can WRITE AWAY!
 

CRITIQUES: Bring ten copies of up to 1,500 words (approx. four double-spaced pages) of your manuscript with line numbers for critique, and we'll incorporate the Word Warriors method we explored last month which worked so well. While the members are giving feedback, please do not speak until all have finished unless someone asks a direct question. Here is a video of the process if you want to get a feel for it: https://vimeo.com/20681339.

 

Please bring a snack to share. Hope to see you on the 19th!
