A Publisher's Perspective On Polishing Your Book

Publishers edit the books they produce. Because of this, you might wonder why you need to edit your manuscript at all prior to sending it off to a publisher.

Whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction, polishing your manuscript before submission will give you the best chance of being accepted by a publishing house. 

In this session, founder of The Publishing Circle Linda Stirling will walk you through real-life examples to help you understand how to get submission (or self-publish) ready.

The structural edit is the first edit you'll complete on your manuscript. This is where you look at the big picture: your plot, characters, settings, and scenes.

September Topic: How to Write Crime and Thriller Fiction

On the second Tuesday of every month, the ProWritingAid community is invited to bring all their questions to our favorite Book Doctor, Sally O-J.

What is a Book Doctor? A book doctor works alongside the author, looking at everything from plot and characterization to writing technique, dialogue, and texture. If you're wondering how to turn your manuscript from a labor of love into a bestseller, a book doctor's diagnosis might be what you're missing.

Each webinar will be based around a topic and Sally will provide practical advice and training before opening up for questions from attendees.
