Work through this three-pass edit to get your manuscript ready to submit (or indie publish) in January 2023!

Writer and professional editor Kate McMurray walks you through the process of taking your manuscript from good to great in a series of workshops on revising and editing your work. The series starts with Big Picture Revising, discussing how to fix big issues in your first draft, including plot holes, character inconsistencies, and other big picture issues. Then in Fine Tune Your Manuscript, Kate will guide authors through some common manuscript issues and how to fix them. Finally, in a self-editing workshop, Kate will guide authors through the process of checking for little errors in grammar and mechanics to give the manuscript a final polish. Whether you are self-publishing or sending your manuscript out via the query process, this series can help get your book ready for the big time.

I really enjoyed this series. Even though I wasn't able to participate much I did learn a lot. I do think it would be better if each section were month long courses instead of 2 weeks, that way there would be more time to interact and work on the lessons.
