RWA OWL: Romance Editing Done Right

You’ve written the draft, now what? Let Ebony McKenna show you how to become objective about your own writing and edit your romance novel until it shines like a diamond. 

Whether chasing a traditional deal or self-publishing, authors need to deliver a great read to their audience. It’s a crowded marketplace out there. A beautifully edited novel will put your titles way ahead of the rest, and build your readership.

Ebony has run this OWL a few times now and it works a treat. Yes, it is hard work, but the results are worth it. Participants will learn all the stages of editing (there are many) and know what to look for in their manuscripts. Most importantly, they’ll develop the tools to fix issues with their writing.

Pre-course preparation

A first draft, or at least half a draft. Can be any length, doesn’t have to be 50k. This also works for novellas.

Course Type


Hours of Commitment

At least a couple of hours a week, as editing is not something you can do all that quickly.

Presenters Bio
