Topic: “Writing Fitness Workshop” with Dr. Chris Jackson
Presenter: Chris Jackson,Ph.D. is a Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at Nova Southeastern University. She’s author of The Tell-Tale Art: Poe in Modern Popular Culture.
Program: You have a manuscript, but you cringe when you read it. If only someone could polish your sentences to make an agent or publisher sit up and say “Yes!”
That someone is YOU. You are the best editor of your own work. Only you know what you want to say, but you’re not sure how to get there. How can you upgrade your skills as a “Word Trainer” in your own writing process?
This interactive workshop will explain and give you practice with the most effective ways to edit your own work. You can learn how to control word weight, tighten verbs, and tone sentences and paragraphs. Get results with your revisions.
