Edit Yourself

SUNDAY, September 23  |  Save thousands of dollars hiring professional editors by learning to edit your own work! As a freelance book editor of 15 years, I see the same mistakes over and over in the manuscripts I edit. From exercises to improve your story arc, character development, dialogue, and description, to tips for copyediting your completed manuscript, I’ll teach you how to turn your good manuscript into a great manuscript in this one-day intensive workshop. Bring a sample of your work (10 pages) and lunch. I’ll provide tea and snacks.

Social Media 2018

SUNDAY, October 7  | Social Media is constantly changing. What worked in 2017 doesn’t necessarily work in 2018. So, whether you think you know social media or not, your strategy could probably use a refresh. Join me for a fun, interactive one-day workshop to learn what’s new with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, and LinkedIn as well as the best tools for managing your social media presence online. This course is great for writers and non-writers alike. Bring your own lunch or join me at American Grilled Cheese during the break. Snacks and tea are provided. 

Meghan Ward is a writer, professional book editor and the founder of Writerland.com, a blog about writing, editing, publishing, and social media.
