Upcoming Self-Editing Workshop

I’m teaching “Catch An Editor’s Eye with Active Writing” from May 11-15. In this workshop, 5 craft areas will be explained, with incorrect structures given as examples and a revision of each provided. The craft issues highlighted are:

  • active versus passive verb tense
  • reduction of adverbs and boosting verbs
  • strengthening expletive construction
  • cause and effect structure
  • position of power words

The cool thing is participants will work on 10 or 15 pages (total number depends on class enrollment) from their own manuscripts. So by the end of the week, you will have completed 5 drafts of revision. Workshop is taught through Yahoo Groups administered by Trans Canada Romance Writers. Registration deadline is May 10th.
