You’ve written (or are writing) a story. Congratulations!


Now what?


Before you publish or submit your work, make sure it’s as polished as possible. Editing is essential, but use your own red pen before hiring an editor. Investing time and effort in self-editing will save you money in future costs (and it’ll save your future editor’s sanity, too).


Thursday, July 9, Teresa TL Bruce will lead the FWA Maitland Writers Group in a discussion of self-editing, including general guidelines and specific steps. Join us in the Maitland Library (501 Maitland Avenue South, Maitland) at 6:30 p.m.
