This course will tackle many questions. What is the difference between a structural and copy edit? How do you keep track of your style? How do you pare things back when they are getting unruly? What should you hold on to and what should you let go?
In this unique course, your teacher will take you through the process of working with an editor if your piece is accepted for publication. You will have an opportunity to workshop your own material, as well as discuss that of fellow participants. This is a chance to get your prose into the best shape it possibly can be before submitting it to publications.
Featuring special guests throughout the course, this is a rare opportunity to develop your writing in real time, with writing and editing experts alike, while gaining new skills you can carry with you for the rest of your career.
This program will also include the rare opportunity have a sample of your work copy-edited by a Senior Editor. You will work towards providing a 2000-3000 word piece, which will receive two rounds of revisions returned to you following the conclusion of the course.
