Join me for a self-editing workshop starting Monday


I am teaming up with the ESPAN (Electronic and Small Press Authors’ Network) special-interest chapter of RWA to bring you a multi-day workshop on self-editing your work. You can visit their site to register. The below information is lifted directly from their site.

January 18, 2010 Self Editing Workshop by Angela James

Join Angela James as she shares some of the common pitfalls she’s seen in submissions and contest entries. She’ll give you ideas, tips and tricks for polishing and self-editing your manuscript. Discuss things such as dialogue tags, whether all forms of “to be” really are evil and just what you’re doing to your life expectancy with your use of that exclamation point. Through it all, she’ll be available for clarification and questions in order to help you on your way to a cleaned-up manuscript.

This course will run over several days on the forum, so you can pop in and out as needed to ask Angela questions or see the new information she’s posted. So, you don’t need to be available at any certain time of day, but you do need to sign up for the course to attend.

The course will be $5 for ESPAN RWA members, $10 for non-ESPAN RWA Members and $15 for non-RWA

  1. Yeah … I’m in. Just registered, and boy do I need this. I hate editing, can’t spell without spell-check, and really need the help with finding mistakes in grammar. Thanks, Angela!

  2. Hi Angela!

    I just signed up, HOWEVER, I will be on vacation in the Caribbean when thisI starts and I will not have internet while on my trip. I am presuming I can come back later to download all of the course. Am I correct in thinking this?

  3. Angela James says:

    The entire course will be held on a forum, so you’ll be able to access it all there. If something happens and you can’t, I will happily send you the posts.
