Pimp Your Literary Ride: Add Bling to your Book with Substantive Editing

Pre-conference Workshop
Friday May 22
1:30 – 4:30 p.m.

That new manuscript you’re holding looks vintage: it has character and solid frame, but the leather is sagging and the bodywork is rusty. It needs a makeover. Would changing the structure help with murky exposition? Might some trimming reduce character flaws? Could an extra section address some ominous omission in the argument? Join Peter Midgley, winner of the Tom Fairley Award for Literary Excellence, for a discussion on how substantive editing can help soup up your book’s engine and make its inner bling shine.
