Richmond Event: Writer, Edit Thyself!

Here’s an interesting event down in Richmond, sponsored by James River Writers and the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

The Writing Show: Writer, Edit Thyself!

Want to put your best word forward? Then you need to learn to be your own best editor. The January Writing Show features critically acclaimed authors Tom DeHaven, Dean King, and Andrew Corsello, representing fiction, nonfiction, and journalism, discussing their techniques, tricks, and disciplines for cleaning up their writing before anyone else sees it.

Meet Your Best Editor: You
