The club will be meeting on 13 May at 08:30 AM Pacific Time via Zoom.

Speaker begins at 10:00 AM PT.

Our Topic: Revising Your Own Work, with Jane K. Cleland

You’ve finished your manuscript—now what? It’s time to polish the story, add complexity to the characters, and burnish the prose. In other words, it’s time to revise! In this workshop, we’ll discuss my three-step approach to the revision process. You’ll learn professional tricks, techniques, and tips to ensure your work is ready for submission. I’ll provide numerous examples so you’ll know how to implement these proven techniques in your own work.”
