Self-Editing Tips after NaNoWriMo with ProWritingAid
So you’ve managed to (hopefully) pull together a lot of words in November for NaNoWriMo… now it’s time to start thinking about revising! Join us for a workshop on self-editing skills so that when you dig in over the holidays, or after the New Year, you’re ready to go!
Hayley is thrilled to be ProWritingAid’s Content Lead, as it gives her an excuse to think deeply about words every single day. Prior to joining ProWritingAid, Hayley spent a number of years as an elementary school teacher, which was a crash course in learning how to entertain an indifferent audience. These days, she puts her storytelling skills to use writing blog articles and working on her first novel.
Editing Your Story Structure with Fictionary
You’re coming to the end of NaNoWriMo and are about to type “The End” on your first draft. Are you wondering how you’re going to tackle editing the story you just wrote? In this session, Kristina Stanley, CEO of Fictionary and ALLi Story Editing Advisor, will teach you where to begin a story edit. If your dream is to craft a powerful story, she’ll show you how to “see” your first draft in a new way. Story editing is the primary structural review of your manuscript and the story you’re telling. Whether you’re self-publishing or going the traditional route, your story needs to be as good as you can possibly make it before sharing it with others. Before you share your story, you owe it to yourself to tell the best possible story. Learn how to story edit, and you’ll create a story readers love. You’ll leave this webinar with advice you can take action on right away. You’ll know what to do next!

July 28th – Publish With a Partner: Do It Yourself Doesn’t Mean Do It Alone.
Ramona Pina and Lucy Briggs of BookBaby
There is some misconception about how one must take the reigns entirely themselves or lose control of their work. Perhaps we can dispel this myth and show how writers can sell directly to readers and build their author platform with a partner AND retain control and independence.
May 28th – A conversation with AJ Ogilvie of ProWritingAid on the fundamentals of clarity, why clarity matters, and why it means so much for our readers.
To be sure, all writers believe in the value of clarity, and as readers we can confidently describe a sentence or paragraph as clear or unclear. But most of us don’t really know the specifics of how clarity is produced. In this webinar we talk about how to craft sentences that produce clarity for readers, how to effectively organize information for readers, and how we can create writing that provides a fluid reading experience for our audience.
