Writers love their own words! We are loath to get rid of any of them. And yet, when the writing is done, it’s often the editing that turns a worthy draft into an excellent story. From story arc to single words and sentences, participants will learn ways to edit their own work.


David B. Seaburn’s latest novel, Broken Pieces of God, will be released in September 2021 by Black Rose Writing. His first novel, Darkness is as Light,was published in 2005. He followed with Pumpkin Hill (2007); Charlie No Face (2011), a Finalist for the National Indie Excellence Award in General Fiction; Chimney Bluffs (2012); More More Time (2015); Parrot Talk (2017), which placed second in the TAZ Awards for Fiction (2017) and was shortlisted for the Somerset Award (2018); and Gavin Goode (2019), an American Book Fest Finalist for “Best Book” in General Fiction (2019). www.davidbseaburn.com
