September, 2012 Monthly Meeting: Editing: Knowing What to Take Away and What to Add with Kimberly Carlson

Kimberly Carlson

At our September meeting author and college English and Creative Writing instructor Kimberly Carlson will explain why for most writers, editing isn’t just about fixing commas, spelling and word choice. It is the arduous task of sometimes deleting pages, and even chapters. It is adding depth, defining characters, narrowing plot and perfecting voice.  Carlson will share her editing journey while working on her novel, Out of the Shadows, and will leave writers with thoughts about how to editing their articles, stories or novels.

After graduating Humboldt State University with a MA in English Composition and Literature, Kimberly Carlson taught Composition and Creative Writing courses at Shasta College. She has been published in The Sun and The Hot Air Quarterly. Her novel, Out of the Shadows, was released in May 2012.
