Editing/Revision Workshop for Honolulu Writers

Here's a workshop I would advise Honolulu residents and visitors to look into. I've known Lynne Wikoff for years. In addition to being the Co-Regional Adviser of the Hawaii Chapter of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators), Lynne is a gifted writer and editor whose support and advice I have come to respect and cherish.

Edit my own work? Me??? Revision Secrets of the Pros


When: Saturdays, February 6 and 13, 2010, 9 a.m. to 12 noon
Where: Honolulu, Hawaii
Cost: $60 Enrollment is limited.
Contact: lwikoff@lava.net

Instructor Lynne Wikoff:
"Over the past three decades, I’ve written columns in both the Advertiser and Stat-Bulletin, published several articles in national magazines, worked in corporate communications and PR, and been a free-lancer editor and writer. I’ve had two books published by Island Heritage and currently have a completed novel under consideration by agents."

Workshop Description:
Today’s harried editors are demanding close-to-perfect manuscripts. That means the task of revision falls to writers. (Yes, you.) Whether you’re ready to refine a completed novel draft or you want to temporarily switch from writing to editing, I can help.

In two 3-hour sessions, I’ll reveal the tricks of the editor’s trade—revision techniques sure to make your manuscript stronger. (Maybe even strong enough to sell!)
  • Session 1 – The Best Story: Overview Editing
    Structure/plot/scenes; character inventory; believability; where to expand, where to contract; timelines; format

  • Session 2 – The Best Words: Content Editing
    Tighten and strengthen; dialogue; description; a good start; Q & A
