On Saturday May 10 the Central Library is excited to host Self-Editing 101 — a free workshop on the revision and editing of your writing. Susan Forest from the Calgary Association of Freelance Editors, or CAFE, will lead the workshop from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. with the goal of giving your writing shape and professional polish. Opportunities to attend free writing workshops don't come around too often, so spaces at this event are filling up quick. Register now to make sure you get a spot.
Susan Forest is a writer of science fiction, fantasy and horror. She is a member of SFWA and SF Canada, and works as a fiction editor for Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishers. She is the winner of The Galaxy Project for her novella, “Lucy”, and her YA novel, The Dragon Prince, was awarded the Children’s Circle Book Choice Award. Other stories have appeared in Asimov’s Science Fiction, Analog, Tesseracts, AE Science Fiction Review, OnSpec, and Legacy Magazine. “Back” was a finalist for the 2009 the Prix Aurora Award.
Of course nothing beats the in-person guidance of a writing workshop, but to get a head start on the polish of your work, check out some of these titles available from your local library:
