Let Your Story Shine: Avoiding Mistakes that Kill Your Prose

You may have a killer plot and amazing characters, but if your writing isn’t on the same level, you’ll have a hard time getting your work in front of readers. Agents and editors get thousands of submissions per year, and the vast majority aren’t read past the first few pages–if that far! So what distinguishes the writing of a professional from one that needs more TLC than they can give? This seminar will address a number of factors that make your writing look unprofessional, from crutch phrases and filter words to unnecessary adverbs and telling rather than showing and more. Root out the weeds that are choking your prose and let your story shine!
