Forum: Self-Editing presented by Ann Jacobs

January 18-22

Self-Editing presented by Ann Jacobs

Self-editing for fiction writers

Ann Jacobs, multi-published author of bestselling, award-winning novels and novellas, takes you step by step through the self-edits you need to perform before presenting your book or novella to a publisher, a private line editor or the world in general.

- Maximize the functionality of your word processor to help clean your manuscript while recognizing its limitations

- Realize where your skills lie when it comes to grammar, punctuation, spelling and word choice, and tailor your self-editing process to account for your strengths—and mitigate your areas of weakness (in other words, where to focus your self-editing efforts to best advantage)

- Learn to recognize when your manuscript is as good as you can make it—before turning it in to be judged/contracted/presented to the end purchaser

Seminar is an accompaniment to a short, to-the-point book, available in print ($9.99) or digital ($3.99) format from Amazon. Will run a special on the digital version during the time of seminar.
