This Month’s Workshop:

March 13, 2021: Y. M. Nelson – Finessing The Story (Or: What Do Editors Want Anyway?)

Wondering how to take a good story and make it great? What does having a “fresh voice” really mean? And why should I care about filter words, anyway? This presentation shows how those annoying grammar “rules” and writing foundations can take a story from okay to “must-read,” and gives you practical examples so you can do it, too.


Coming up next month:

April 10, 2021: TBD
