In-Person Coast: Editing Bootcamp with Maren Bradley Anderson

Willamette Writers Coast Presents

Coast Chapter Header

Editing Bootcamp with Maren Bradley Anderson

In-Person Only

Join the Willamette Writers Coast Chapter as Maren Bradley Anderson, Emerita Editor of the Timberline Review, presents “Editing Bootcamp” Saturday, April 22 from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm at the Newport Public Library.

We love it. We hate it. Without it, a story is doomed. This fast-paced interactive
workshop will walk you through a specific process for deep editing of scenes,
paragraphs, sentences, and words. These are practical tools you can use on the fly
to make your scenes shine.

Attendees are encouraged to bring two pages of their work in progress (preferably
the beginning of a chapter that is still in the rough draft stage) and they can work
along as Anderson moves through the process. Writers are welcome to participate
even if they do not have a chapter in rough draft stage. Nonfiction and memoir
writers can learn tips as well.
