Polish Like a Pro - Short Course
"It's not you--it's me." It's time for you to break up with your manuscript, get out that red pen and polish like a pro. This four-week course will cover some self-editing techniques to ensure your book is the very best it can be before you send it to either a professional editor or a publishing house for submission. This course will cover effective book break-up techniques, the index card revision system, editing for the senses, the question and answer technique and more, to help you 'take you book from good to great'.
Join experienced editor and presenter Lauren Clarke in this four-week course.
