Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.
You’ve put a lot of work into writing your manuscript and are ready to share it with the world. But first, you owe your book (and your writing repetition) a serious polish. Learn what a professional copy editor looks for on that last round before publication: from proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting, to consistent spelling, and more.
Please bring a manuscript ready for copy editing to work on in class.
Nina Alvarez of Dream Your Book Author Services and Joy Argento, award-winning artist and amazon best-selling indie novelist, are teaming up to offer an 8-week series on Self-Publishing. Aspiring self-publishers will learn how to navigate print-on-demand publishing through CreateSpace and eBook publishing with Kindle, Nook, and other eReaders. All classes are offered a la carte, so pick and choose according to your needs.
Note: Many classes require that you come prepared with a laptop and are proficient using computer applications such as Word and comfortable enough online to navigate applications such as CreateSpace, Kindle, Smashwords, Animoto, and Weebly.
