Meet Mariah Fredricks and learn how to be your own best editor.
Mariah Fredericks is the author of eight novels for young adults, including The Girl in the Park and Crunch Time, which was nominated for an Edgar Award. Her first mystery for adults, A Death of No Importance, will be published by Minotaur in 2018. The head copywriter for Book-of-the-Month Club for many years, she currently works as a freelance editor.
In an era when editors have less and less time to work on a manuscript, writers need to be their first and best editor. Yet it’s often hard for people to step back and see their story with fresh eyes. This talk will address how to read like a reader and not the writer, effective ways to find and cut the flab, the meaningless of “good,” and how to make the most of outside feedback,so you can be Your Own Best Editor.
