How to Practice Successful Editing: A Craft Lecture
“To write is human, to edit is divine.”–Stephen King. Bestselling author Stephen King understands one of the most important, yet difficult parts of the writing process is editing. All writers, if they are committed to producing the most compelling versions of their work, must tangle with this aspect of craft at some point. Join award-winning author Johnnie Bernhard as she demystifies the editing process for prose writers of all levels and unpacks the different types of editing you can take part in to unlock your truest voice and push your work to its highest level. All participants will come away with concrete examples of tools that improve writing and a deepened awareness of the editing process and how best to apply it to their own work. By the end of this craft lecture and interactive workshop, we hope you will also see, as King does, the essential, even “divine,” role of editing in empowering your writing practice.
