Editing without an Editor: A Revision Tools Workshop with Harold Underdown!

** Note: registration is now closed for this event.

Harold Underdown, editor, master teacher, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Children’s Book Publishing and the creator of The Purple Crayon website for children’s book writers and illustrators, is here for one day only to teach his renowned revision techniques workshop.



Writers and illustrators, if you are eager to take your work to the next level, this workshop is a must.


The day begins with a discussion of the reading process (where all good editing begins) and continues with an exploration of methods for gaining feedback from others. A variety of techniques and tools for both “big picture” revision and final stage tweaking and polishing complete the workshop.
