The Flip-Side of a Writer
“There Are Two Typos Of People In This World: Those Who Can Edit And Those Who Can’t” — Jarod Kintz
Date/Time: Tuesday, February 18, 6 pm – 8 pm

Workshop Description: It’s important to understand the dual sides of a writer — the creative side and the analytic side. Both sides of a writer are important and require extraordinary amounts of energy, time, patience, wisdom, commitment, and skill. But many writers find that their editorial flip-side is weak and underdeveloped. This workshop will help you hone your editing skills, help you work effectively with your editor, and develop your analytic side with ease.
