Rewrite, Revise, Revisit: A Guide to Editing Your Book
Have you finished a first draft? Congratulations! Now the fun begins.
Every writer knows that editing is the most important part of the writing process. This is where all the really important, meaningful work happens.
It’s where you have the most control, and the ability to really carry out your intentions and make this into the kind of book you set out to write in the first place.
In this class I’m going to give you a toolbox for approaching every edit, and every revision, of your book, including:
- What you can do in the early stages of editing
- What’s better to leave for the final stages
- How to handle the edits you get back from your editor
- What happens in the copyediting and proofreading stages
This class is for anyone who has finished a first draft, whether it’s fiction, nonfiction, memoir, an essay collection, a how-to guide—no matter what kind of book you’re writing, a top-notch edit will get it ready for publication.
