FACE TIME WITH AN EDITOR

Event for Members of Mechanics Institute

Date: Tue, 07/31/2012 – 2:00pm – 4:00pm Paralyzed with writers’ block? Need guidance in developing an outline? Concerned about your writing style? Is your “voice” appropriate to both your content and your audience? Want to simply learn how an editor thinks by observing one in action? Join David Colin Carr, editor of fiction and non-fiction, for a public “editorial consultation.” For help with writing style, we’ll look at up to 5 pages. Consultations will be audio recorded for possible posting on David’s blog so others can learn about the editing process as well. You can remain anonymous. Limited slots available. Reservations required. Writing must be submitted in advance, and you must be comfortable with your work being commented on publicly.
