Synopsis:

There are two phases to the writing process - writing and editing - and Simon Clews often makes the case why editing is actually more important than writing. This hands-on workshop will look at a wide variety of editing techniques and will use practical assignments to show the positive impact that a red pen can have on a writer's work. The old adage 'less is more' will come into play as participants work on their own writing and learn how to improve it immeasurably. The workshop will explore how to develop something of a split personality where you can switch off your writer's brain and switch on your editor's brain to make the most out of the two very distinct approaches that these very different roles have to your writing. It might sound odd, but it works!
