Las Vegas Romance Writers - RWA - Angela James: Before You Hit Send Workshop

Concrete ideas, tips, and tricks for polishing and self-editing your manuscript. Tips are delivered along with examples and assignments to help you get the most out of your workshop experience. Workshop participants will develop a checklist of techniques, tips, information, and processes for enhancing their self-editing skills and polishing future manuscripts, as well as learn how to make the new knowledge a habit while writing future books.

Learn both the basics and advanced techniques of:

  • Dialog and dialog tags
  • Whether all forms of “to be” are evil (the answer is no)
  • Just what you’re doing to your life expectancy with the use of that exclamation point
  • What is overwriting? How can you avoid it?
  • Basic and advanced punctuation
  • Passive voice vs active voice, how to tell the difference
  • Point of view
  • Pacing
  • What we mean by show not tell. And how to do that!
  • Formalizing and finalizing your manuscript before you hit send
  • …much, much more.

Lunch will be provided and the event will start at 9:00 am and run until 4:30 pm. It will take place at THE LEARNING VILLAGE / 727 FREMONT STREET BETWEEN 7th and 8th Streets.

    So much fun. The information was so informative. I can't think of a better way to have spent my day with women who are so professional and wonderful. I so look forward to the next meeting and would so love it to see Angela speak again. ;-)
