Berkeley (Zoom): Editing Your Manuscript: The Whys, Whats, and Hows
March 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
“Editing Your Manuscript” with Ericka McIntyre
The Whys, Whats, and Hows
In this talk, freelance editor and former Writer’s Digest Editor-in-Chief Ericka McIntyre will explain to authors what the different types of editing are, when and why you need each for your work, and how to find quality editors. She’ll also talk about the types of editing you can potentially do yourself and those that you should always seek professional help with. Self-publishers will get insights on why professional editing is critical to their success, and how to work it into their process. Writers who plan to seek an agent for their work will also benefit from editing before querying their work.
