Instead, this course, which is run as part of the Claire Keegan fiction clinics series, concentrates on the micro level issues in your fiction manuscript. It focuses on the nitty gritty problems you as the author must address when fine-tuning your work. The better self-edited your manuscript is before you send it to an editor or proofreader, the less expensive the professional editing stage will be.
Those considering a career in proofreading or copy-editing might also find this course interesting and informative.
It is a two-day course and will cover:
Course dates: 27–28 February 2016 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day)
Venue: The Millrace Hotel, Bunclody, Co Wexford
Tuition fee: €200
To book: please email firstname.lastname@example.org
