Crisp Up That Prose! – Tight writing is a necessity for attracting agents and editors as well as keeping readers interested. In this workshop, we’ll discuss frequently used fluff words, strategies for cleaning up sentences, and bad habits that can make prose cumbersome. We’ll utilize three strategies–cut, replace, and trim down–to make your writing as efficient as possible. Bring some of your writing that needs revision for a hands-on portion of class. You’ll leave with easy strategies to use in your writing and an editing checklist to help you spot fluff.

    Arielle Haughee is listed as the “September Speaker,” yet this says October 15th. She’s not on the calendar for either month. Is something amiss? Please LMK. Thanks.

      Hi Nance,
      We are working diligently to get caught up on all of the website updates. Arielle’s info has already been fixed. Please bear with us while we move forward through this unfortunate transition.
