Editing Workshop at CCPL

Editing Workshop with Edmund Pickett: Saturday, August 13, 10am

Editing your own work is a difficult but essential task for every writer. Attend this workshop and learn to polish your prose and make your plot more suspenseful, as well as proofreading strategies to eliminate grammatical, punctuation, spelling, and formatting errors.

Submit your manuscript for editing! For a chance to have your work edited by Picket, email your 2,000-word, 14 point-type, Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) novel samples to genevieve@ccpls.org by 12pm, Friday, July 29. We'll draw three names and send them to the editor to be used anonymously during the workshop.

Reedsy was founded in 2014 and since then has built a community of over 1 million authors and 2,500 freelance professionals — helping them bring more than 15,000 books to market each year. Through Reedsy, Edmund Pickett has worked with nearly 100 authors since 2013, helping them develop plot, characters, setting, continuity, and pacing. “I can offer developmental editing in the early drafts, and copy editing for the final manuscript,” says Pickett.

Don’t miss this opportunity to polish your editing skills!
