Topic: Story Structure
Robin Martin and freelance editor Susan Herman (Edit2YourCredit) will provide insights into how to identify the elements of a powerful and effective story and how to articulate the strengths and weaknesses of a piece. Robin is founder of Two Songbirds Press and also a staff reviewer for the San Francisco Book Review and the Sacramento Book Review. Both are members of the Editorial Freelancers Association.
If you are having trouble structuring your story or if your writing group loves your words, but can’t help you with the big picture . . . or, if you lack the confidence to let go of your manuscript for publishing, Martin and Herman say maybe it’s time to hire an editor. “The writer should get peer group feedback and even feedback from a professional reader. Then, of course, the writer has to put the manuscript to the side and write a powerful query letter to the agent.”
