Writing and Editing Workshop

Step into 2021 a More Polished Writer and Author


Part I

Digging Out the Writer Within YOU!

An author’s words can pull in a reader … or push him out to sea. It’s all about the editing that is brought in by another set of eyes. Then there’s the Midas touch of your words, weaving stories, entertaining, creating escapism, peaking curiosity, solving problems, and making a difference.


  • Do it; take the chance! WRITE!
  • Write what you like/want to read; don’t chase fads.
  • Keep learning craft – no one is born knowing HOW to write.
  • The death of the cliché and birthing a new one.
  • Works to avoid from the get-go.
  • Creating the golden arch.


  • Why all writers need an editor.
  • Skipping an editor could be the most expensive mistake you will ever make.
  • Why English teachers aren’t editors. Or your friends. Or your relative.
  • Content, Developmental, Proofreading –who are they; what do they cost; and when do you need them.
  • How to work with an editor and let your ego go.
  • The ultimate tool for editing.
