Presentation: Before You Hit Send
This is the condensed version of Angela’s 3-week online self-editing workshop. The workshop runs from 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., with a very short morning and afternoon break, and a one-hour break for lunch. Topics cover everything from the basics of self-editing (punctuation, grammar, adverb/adjective use) to the more advanced topics of pacing, passive voice, overwriting and much, much more!
