Anatomy of An Edit – From 1st Draft to Submission

This presentation is a 10-step road map any writer can follow from their novel’s first draft (their first or their twenty-first project!) to submission to agents or editors. It touches on "big picture" items like character arc, plot, pacing, and theme. Suggestions for critique partners/groups and free resources for writers are included. It may be helpful to writers who are active critique partners and want to take their group to the next level.
