EDITING BOOT CAMP
How to Become a Better Self-Editor in 10 Days
By Michele Bardsley ~ firstname.lastname@example.org
GOOD NEWS! One participating student will win a very special prize: a
critique from Kara Cesare, Executive Editor for New American Library.
She will read and comment on the first two chapters and synopsis of
the winning student's work. NAL is an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).
Ms. Cesare is the editor for many talented authors, including J.R.
Ward. Winner will be chosen by random drawing.
Instructor: Nationally bestselling author Michele Bardsley will show
writers how to polish their work until it shines. With twenty-three
years of editing experience, she has worked with newspapers,
publishers, and authors to craft better prose. She's presented Editing
Boot Camp and other workshops at numerous conferences and online venues.
Workshop: In ten days, you will learn how to examine your work with
the eyes of an editor. After Editing Boot Camp, you'll be able to
deliver cleaner, better written manuscripts. As part of the class fee,
Michele will critique five pages OR a synopsis for each enrolled student.
Students will be subscribed to the workshop list. Michele will post
information and homework each day. The course is at your-own-pace.
Your participation level is up to you. The list will remain open for
discussion and questions during the full two weeks.
We will cover the editing process, word choices, description, passive
writing, critique groups, and much more!
When: November 26th – December 7th. Monday – Friday.
Where: Online. After payment is received, students will be subscribed
to the workshop list.
