Karen & Sherylyn Dunstall
Early, Emerging
You’ve eliminated all the plot holes in your manuscript, every scene follows from the last and the ending works. Now you’re ready to do a final copy edit before you send the manuscript away. Right? Actually, there’s another layer of editing before that. This workshop covers that middle layer of editing. It goes beyond structural edits all the way down to line editing.

You will learn:

  •  Techniques to help you identify unnecessary words in your manuscript
  •  How to identify when you are showing, not telling
  •  Tips to identify your personal writing tics
  •  How to smooth out your writing
  •  Techniques for strengthening characters

 

About Karen & Sherylyn Dunstall

S. K. Dunstall is the pen name for Sherylyn and Karen Dunstall, sisters who have been telling stories—and sharing them with each other—all their lives. Some ago, they realised the stories they worked on together were much better than the stories they worked on alone. A co-writing partnership was born. They write speculative fiction, and have four novels with Ace Books, with a fifth to be published in January 2019.
