Editing Non-Fiction

Writing non-fiction is one thing, but polishing it for publication is a whole different skillset. In this short course, award-winning non-fiction writer Anna Spargo-Ryan will teach you the invaluable essentials of editing your own work – and how to know when it’s ready to submit.
