Preparing your Manuscript for Editing by Alex McGilvery

You’ve written a book. Congratulations, that’s more than a lot of people achieve, but now what? Your first draft isn’t ready for public consumption. First drafts never are. Alex McGilvery offers tricks and tips on how to polish that manuscript yourself to make it ready for editing by a professional. He covers working on structural issues, line issues and even tips of proof reading.

Alex McGilvery is an author and editor. He has 18 books in print and numerous short stories in anthropologies including the upcoming Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide volume 6. He’s edited over 80 books, many of them Amazon bestsellers.

Thanks to a grant from Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA) made possible with funding from Columbia Basin Trust, fee is only $10 per workshop, with a maximum of 20 participants per workshop.
