Feb 17, 8-9:15 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; revision approaches and techniques (from butchering-to-the-bones to hand-polishing for submission) and tips for using feedback to guide your revisions. He’ll use client examples to show the evolution of a book right through editorial feedback and revisions. This talk will focus on picture books, but the concepts will apply to writers in other categories.
