Your inner editor can be a foe during the drafting stage, tying up your writing process by tampering with your momentum and self-confidence. But during the revision period, the same inner editor can help bring your writing–and reading–to new heights to make your work the best it can be… at least, before it gets to your editor!

Learn to wield or withhold your inner editor with Hugo-nominee Chimedum Ohaegbu, Managing Editor at Uncanny Magazine, in a workshop that will include real-time writing, reading, and editing exercises.

This workshop is available to anyone aged 18 or older for a $55 fee.

Unless otherwise stated, all times listed are US Pacific Time.
