How to Be An Effective Editor by Sarah Higbee

Thursday 8 November 2012 @ Heene Gallery, Worthing



No matter how good your first draft – if you don’t edit it well, then you are likely to remain on the slush pile.  I’ll be looking at some of the errors that editors and slush readers regularly complain about and how to avoid them.  In addition, I’ll discuss – with notes provided - recent changes in punctuation; issues around plotting; your characters and their role in your story.  If you have any other particular problems or queries connected to editing your work, there will also be a question and answer session.
