Learn the fundamentals of good editing as they apply to the writing and revision process, from the level of the line to broader structural concerns. Using numerous examples of early and late writing drafts, participants will gain experience focusing on editorial points both common and more complicated, with an eye toward tightening and sharpening our work before it arrives on an editor’s desk.

M. Allen Cunningham is the author of six books, including the #1 Indie Next Pick The Green Age of Asher Witherow (Unbridled Books, 2004) and a biographical novel about Rainer Maria Rilke entitled Lost Son (Unbridled Books, 2007). His work has appeared in many literary outlets including The Kenyon Review, Glimmer Train, Tin House, and Alaska Quarterly Review. Cunningham is the founder and publisher of the independent literary press Atelier26 and a contributing editor for Moss literary journal.
