Monday Night Lights

Most days I spend my work days in front of a computer, my workplace interactions limited to email or the occasional phone call.

But on Monday, October 7, I’m going to be talking about editing to a real audience of writers. I’ll be speaking to the Ventura County chapter meeting of the Independent Writers of Southern California (IWOSC) and the Small Publishers, Artists, Writers Network at the Goebel Adult Center in Thousand Oaks.

And I get to talk about my favorite topic: editing! Specifically, I want to answer these questions?

  • Why do you need an editor?
  • Why do you need an editor?
  • What kind of editor do you need?
  • When should you hire an editor?
  • Where do you find an editor?
  • Who will be the right editor for you?
  • How much will an editor cost?
  • How can you create a great team with your editor?

The meeting begins at 6:30 — it will be over by 8. And there will be refreshments!

For more information, email me or see the IWOSC/SPAWN announcement at

Hope to see you there!
