Sure, you know Franz Kafka, Charles Dickens, and Emily Dickinson, but do you know Rufus Wilmot Griswold, Edward Buller-Lytton, or Thomas Wentworth Higginson? The writer-editor relationship has long been an intrinsic aspect of the publishing world, but many writers aren’t sure when to seek an editor, how to find one, or even what it is exactly that an editor does.

Come get your questions about editors answered at the Writespace Editors’ Extravaganza. You’ll have the opportunity to meet Writespace’s current lineup of editing consultants, receive feedback on your work from your editor of choice, and ask questions about the ins-and-outs of the editing process in a panel discussion with our editors. And who knows? Maybe you’ll even find the Maxwell Perkins for the draft of your own Great Gatsby.

Please bring one page of double-spaced prose for a first page feedback session with Cassandra Rose Clarke, Elizabeth White-Olsen, Mark Dostert, or Leslie Contreras Schwartz. Learn more about these editors on Writespace’s Editors page.
