Getting ready to share your writing in public? Then it’s time to work with an editor, even before submitting to an agent. A good editor can advance your writing in challenging and insightful ways. In this class, we’ll practice self-editing techniques; understand stages of editing, whether working with editors or beta readers; and learn to budget, interview, and hire an editor for a successful editorial collaboration. Bring twenty to twenty-five pages of your manuscript for in-class exercises.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.

Annie Pearson is a Seattle writer, author of three contemporary novels and (as E.A. Stewart) a historical fiction series set in the Languedoc crusades. She is also managing editor at Jugum Press, which publishes eclectic fiction and nonfiction, including The Sky High Road by Moses L. Howard. During her technical writing career, her reading turned to early social-issue novelists like Elizabeth Gaskell. She currently reads contemporary writers like Tana French who explore the complexities enveloping people whose lives are in crisis. Pearson’s teaching focuses on sharing technical skills with writers who want more from their tools and more methods for finding readers.
