A series of inspirational and creative workshops with experienced writers, open to all, held at Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Ceredigion.
July 17th 2016, 2 – 5pm
A Writer's View of Editing: When? Why? How?
In this interactive session we'll explore the necessary but often maddening process of editing your writing, covering practical ways to view your work objectively rather than subjectively and so see the wood for the trees, as well as looking at different kinds of editing: what's the difference between a structural edit and a copy edit? What do editors expect of writers when it comes to editing? What if an editor asks you to make changes you disagree with? Katherine will share her experiences (and mistakes to avoid) as an author and poet who has worked with a number of different editors.
Katherine Stansfield's debut novel, The Visitor won the 2014 Holyer an Gof Prize for Fiction. Playing House, her first collection of poems, was published by Seren in 2014. Previously a lecturer in Creative Writing at Aberystwyth University she now writes, edits and teaches freelance.
