You’ve done it! You’ve finished your first draft. Maybe even you’ve gone over your draft a few times and had some beta reader feedback as well. But you’re either not sure it’s ready to send off to an editor, or if you’re if you’ve decided to edit it all on your own, you’re not sure if you’ve missed something that a professional editor would have found and pointed out.

This class will address the differences in types of editing, some common mistakes to look for as you ready a manuscript for publication, some big picture issues that editors point out with pacing, character development, and worldbuilding, and will also teach authors how to clean up/streamline their manuscript before sending to an editor if they so choose. Editors can be expensive to work with, so you want to make sure if you choose this option that your draft is as ready as possible before sending it off. So, whether you want tips for how to go it alone and give a keen eye to your final edits, or if you want to have a manuscript in the best shape possible before your editor receives it, then this is the class for you!
Class Format
Savvy Authors' workshops are held on a forum: a bulletin board based system. You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.

The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.
