Editing Prose – The Text Between Us with Michael Kenyon

In this webinar, we will have a look at some of the fundamentals of the editing process: what is editing? What is the difference between generating text and editing text? How does one develop editing skills? What’s the difference between editing your own work and having your work edited by someone else? How does editing fiction (novel, story, creative nonfiction, poetry) differ from editing nonfiction (essay, thesis, etc)? Some benefits and dangers of editing. I’m open to any and all questions.


Registration is required through Zoom --
