Larry Edwards will present “Kill Your Darlings: The Art of Revision” at the May 20, 2019, meeting of the San Diego Writers & Editors Guild.
This presentation on self-editing is not just for new writers; it’s also designed as a refresher for experienced writers, as well as those who participate in read-and-critique groups, and those who self-publish.
Drawing on his years of experience as an editor, Edwards will discuss structure, plot, content, narrative voice, characters, point of view, and how to “kill your darlings” as it applies to fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction.
By applying the principles and techniques he presents, writers will move closer toward their goal of publishing short stories, novels, memoirs, and narrative non-fiction worthy of merit and recognition, if not financial reward.
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., at the San Diego County Health Services Center, 3851 Rosecrans, San Diego, CA 92110.
The meeting notes/comments are available as a blog series.
