Registration required. Register for Writers' Craft Workshop: Measure Twice, Cut Once: Editing as Care and Confidence
So you’ve got that elusive first draft – but is it ready for an editor’s eyes?
This in-person masterclass, led by writer and editor Tanis MacDonald, will walk writers through ways to prepare and polish their manuscripts before consulting an editor, where to find an editor, and what writers can expect from the editing process.
As a bonus, Tanis will talk about the many times an editor has saved her from making big mistakes.
Tanis MacDonald is an essayist, poet, professor and free-range literary animal. She is the host of the podcast Watershed Writers, and the author of Out of Line: Daring to Be an Artist Outside the Big City. Her essay “Mondegreen Girls” won the Open Seasons Award for Creative Nonfiction in 2021. She identifies as a bad birder, and lives near Ose’kowáhne in southwestern Ontario as a grateful guest on traditional Haudenosaunee territory.
This event has concluded. It's a little too late to make a booking!
