Beyond Spell Check: Self-Editing Before Submission
You’ve finished writing a novel. Now what? Before sending your work out into the world, there is a final critical step: self-editing. Editors and agents don’t expect your novel to be perfect, but if you can show that you’ve put work into submitting a clean and reasonably error-free manuscript, you have a better chance of catching their attention. And editing isn’t just for beginners—we’ve all found simple mistakes in the works of even the most prolific authors. Be sure you’re sending in your best book! Kate McMurray is a published author and professional editor who will walk you through a few editing tips and tricks to help you polish your novel until it shines.
Kate McMurray is an award-winning romance author and an unabashed romance fan. When she’s not writing, she works as a nonfiction editor, dabbles in various crafts, and is maybe a tiny bit obsessed with baseball. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
