Manuscript editing with author Kimmy Beach.
You’ve written the darn thing, and because you’re a writer, you know it needs editing. You also know that your first draft is mostly garbage on a stick, as all first drafts are and don’t let anyone tell you different. Before you send it out to your friends or your writing group or to Random House (HA HA on that one!), it’s a great idea to do some polishing of your own. Using over-written work from a variety of external sources, this workshop will teach you to hone in on your own writing and catch the most common editing challenges all writers face.
Kimmy Beach has been a professional editor for nearly a decade and has edited many books for six presses across Canada. She has facilitated classes, workshops, and retreats for YouthWrite, the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Sage Hill Writing Experience, the Writers’ Guild of Alberta, Parkland Regional Library, and the Canadian Literature Centre at the University of Alberta. Kimmy’s sixth book, Nuala: A Fable, was shortlisted for the Georges Bugnet Award for Fiction.
