Following the 10:00AM General Meeting of the Rose City Romance Writers
There’s a fickle step between first draft and editor-ready manuscript where an author has to decide which ideas are golden and which are heavy as lead and need to be transmuted. It’s hard to kill your darling and much easier to throw the baby out with the bath water – cutting clichés comes later. This workshop takes a look at the mysterious realm of developmental editing, both working solo and with a flesh-and-blood editor – a place where ideas still matter. Get ready to put that English degree to good use.
