Emma Dryden on Putting Your Internal Editor in a Time Out *previously featured on KidLit411
Feb. 17, 8-9:15 p.m. ET Inked Voices Webinar: No Nonsense Revision, with Sean McCarthy Literary Agent Sean McCarthy will discuss ways to determine when your manuscript is ready for revision; different approaches (from tearing it down to the bones to hand-polishing) and when to use them; and tips for using feedback to guide revision. Sean will share client examples to show the evolution of a book after being shared with him, changes with his feedback, and changes with editor revisions. This talk will focus on picture books, but the concepts will apply to writers in other categories.
