Many writers dread having to edit their work, but it’s an essential part of the creative process. At the meeting we’ll examine all the elements needed when editing any piece of work, including novels, short stories, memoirs and non-fiction. From the importance of the structural edit - including pace, chapter length, viewpoint, beginnings, middles and ends – to the nuts and bolts of the line edit, this session will give you all the information you need to make your work the best it can be.

Sarah Palmer is a freelance editor, working on fiction and non-fiction projects with a variety of organisations, publishers and individual writers.
