To "kill your darlings" is one of the most difficult tasks an author has to face. Writing a strong novel or non-fiction book often is as much about rewriting and editing as it is about crafting the first draft. Or, to paraphrase Ernest Hemingway: "The only kind of writing is rewriting."
In this live webinar, five top Reedsy editors will share their ultimate manuscript revision tips for both fiction and non-fiction. They'll tell you what common errors to look for, how to go about the rewriting process, and how to know when your manuscript is finally ready for querying. So if you just finished your first draft, or have a manuscript in the works, this webinar is the perfect opportunity to learn directly from publishing experts.
Reedsy co-founder Ricardo Fayet will be joined by a panel of esteemed editors, all from the Reedsy marketplace:
Laura Mae Isaacman, freelance book editor (worked with Joyce Carol Oates, Noam Chomsky, Lydia Davis, Justin Taylor and Aimee Bender)
Chersti Nieveen, Acquisitions Editor at Cedar Fort (worked with Brandon Sanderson)
Michael Rowley, former Editorial Director at PRH UK (worked with Andy Weir)
Rebecca Heyman, freelance developmental editor and book coach
Jim Spivey, former Hachette Production Editor
The webinar will include an extensive Q&A session at the end, where you will be able to get all your questions answered by our panel of experts.
