Workshop Details

Please join us for Before You Hit Send, a full-day Master Class with Angela James, the Executive Editor of Harlequin’s Carina Press. Before You Hit Send is a hands-on self-editing workshop for authors at all stages of their writing careers, from aspiring to multi-published. This day-long workshop covers everything from the basics of self-editing (punctuation, grammar, adverb/adjective use) to the more advanced topics of pacing, passive voice, overwriting, show versus tell, and more!

A twelve-year veteran of the editing profession, Angela has worked with hundreds authors as a former copy editor, and as the developmental editor of such New York Times Bestselling authors as Shannon Stacey, Lauren Dane and Jaci Burton. She’s sorted through thousands of submissions and contest entries, and in this workshop she’ll tell us exactly how to make our manuscripts shine.
