Description

The tranquil Bellinger Valley was again preparing to celebrate the wonder of all things literary. The COVID-19 induced cancellation of the festival has caused us to rethink the event for 2020, with a number of virtual offerings. Among these are two events that every writer should be interested in: the invaluable role of editors in crafting a story. Both presented by Linda Nix, Accredited Editor and professional member of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPED). The presentation and the workshop will be delivered via Zoom. You can join by either phone or computer and do not need to have a Zoom account. Joining is as easy as clicking on the link we will send you.
