Workshop – How to Be Edited with Mark Oshiro


The editorial process for short stories, novellas, and novels is often (weirdly) shrouded in secrecy. What does it mean to get an edit letter? What are developmental edits? What happens when you get an edit you completely disagree with? Young adult and middle grade author Mark Oshiro will run participants through the traditional editorial process with specific examples culled from their own work to help prepare prospective authors for what editing might look like, as well as provide a roadmap to organizing edits upon receiving them.
