David Colin Carr—The Editing Process: Sometimes Painful, Always Important

How can a writer become a better self-editor? How can you know if you're being too self-critical? Not critical enough? When is it a good idea to call for outside help? How does the process work? How do editors think?

Editor and writing coach David Colin Carr will talk, answer questions and do consultations with this intimate class - a process that can be enormously educational for all. Come learn from the editor bestselling author Jack Kornfield (PhD) called, "well organized, thoughtful, creative and skillful." 

David Colin Carr has been a long-time freelance editor (non-fiction, literary fiction, memoir, and dissertations) with writers as far-flung as Beijing and Johannesburg. Formerly a city council member, donut shop owner, executive director of Mendocino County Big Brothers/Big Sisters, meditation retreat organizer, partner in a software company, and avid traveler, he now gives priority to writing on a range of subjects as broad as his professional activities: the grace in dying, scientific principles for children, how to write, how to benefit from how-to books, and riffs on the charming interludes of daily life. He is involved in the Bay Area self-publishing network because of his faith in the process of learning and sharing and pushing boundaries. www.DavidColinCarr.com.
