Have you ever wondered what an editor actually does? Do you know what is the difference is between a structural edit and a copy edit? What suggestions might an editor make? This workshop is for anyone who writes and wants to know more about the editing process. As Ernest Hemingway said, ‘the only kind of writing is rewriting.’

If you are self-editing, you’ll get tips on the best way to approach your work in order to get it into tip-top shape before sending to an agent, or for self-publishing.  James Elli  has worked at an Oxford-based literary agency as a submissions reader, offers a portfolio of editorial services and is an author himself.  Alex and Jude will start the workshop with some simple editing exercises.  James recently ran a popular session for us on publishing his novel The Wrong Story with the innovative crowd-funding publishing house, Unbound
