Former editor, Harold Underdown, tells us that he will be working with the Highlights Foundation this year in two different workshops.
On March 10 -13, at the Highlights Founders Workshop site near Honesdale, PA, he will introduce proven techniques for self-editing and for revising. The goal is not so much to revise a manuscript (though participants will) but to increase their ability to revise on their own or by working with other writers-thus reducing their need for help from workshops and critiques! Harold will be joined by children's book editor Eileen Robinson, who runs F1rst Pages. Harold and Eileen will be drawing on
their experience working in-house as editors and running their Kid's Book Revisions workshop to help writers to think like editors.
The workshop is limited to twelve writers: information and an application form can be found at the Highlights Foundation website.
Or you may phone Jo Lloyd at 570-253-1192,
to request an application.
Harold will also be teaching this summer at the Highlights Foundation's 2011 Writer's Workshop at Chautauqua, from July 16th
through the 23rd. This is a fantastic week with stellar faculty.
Writers who are concerned about costs should know that applications for scholarships are still being accepted through February 11th.
