YOUR CRITICAL OPENING PAGE

In today's competitive market, the new writer can't afford to wait to make his/her novel interesting. You must hook your agent or editor by the first few PARAGRAPHS.
 Some agents say they can tell in the First Paragraph if the piece is worth reading. They may read another few paragraphs, perhaps the entire page, but if the writer hasn't presented at least the first of the essential elements by then, off the manuscript goes with a reject stamp.

Palm Springs Writers Guild Workshop:

"Editors ? Who Needs Them?" 

November 17, 2012 9:30am - 12:30pm

At some point during the writing process, many writers wonder if they need an editor. But questions arise. How to find the right one? What does an editor do? And, is it worth the expense?

Some topics include:

* Don?t make this mistake;

* Does a copyeditor check for story structure?

* What to look for when seeking their services;

* How much should I expect to pay?

Bring your pen & paper for some self-editing exercises to strengthen your manuscript and avoid some of the common mistakes often found during the editing process.
