You are invited to a Special Event for Writers

"Great Beginnings - How Professional Editors Work"Topic:

Saturday January 22, 2022 02:30 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Join us as a panel of professional editors review and critique sample pages of writers’ work LIVE and discuss their rationale. This is a unique opportunity for you to learn how real pros consider the material and intent of the author, then offer improvements, from grammar to structure to storytelling, and more.
If you submit your page in advance and it is approved for use, it will be projected on a big screen or via Zoom as it is read aloud, so the audience can follow along and learn from the pros to help improve your own writing. The panel will also take as many questions as time permits.
