Face Time with an Editor

A two hour class with David Colin Carr

A lot can be learned about writing and self-editing from watching an editor in the trenches. It can also calm your trepidation about submitting your own writing for editorial scrutiny. With four writing samples and/or structural concerns in front of you, you’ll track how an editor explores the specific challenges in live conversation with a writer, and maybe a chance to ask questions.
