September 23, 2020 6pm PDT (UTC -7:00) Book Coaching - The New Edit Book coaching may not be a new concept, but it is growing as a modern editorial service. Editors are most traditionally known for the work they do on finished manuscripts. But the development of writing as a teachable craft, and not just a talented specialty, has created a need for editors who help writers in the planning and drafting phase. Book coaching has thus become an ideal education option for those without access to writing programs or without adequate support. In this webinar, you will learn: what book coaching doeswhy it differs from other types of editinghow to know if coaching is the right service for youand when to prepare for a season of coaching The discussion will be followed by Q&A.Presenters: Jaime DillJaime Dill is the Editorial Director of the Polish & Pitch editorial agency, which she founded in 2018. Jaime and her partner editors use their combined nine years of experience to provide writers with craft knowledge, inspiration, and drive via their coaching, editorial, and querying services. You can learn more about Jaime's availability and what service best fits your needs at www.polishandpitch.com. You can also follow her on Twitter (@jaime_dill) where she posts editorial tips, personal writing incidents, and too many ironic typos. Coral RiveraI started writing at a young age, during an insufferably hot summer in Puerto Rico. I wrote about magic and intelligent heroines, and I realized it was what I was meant for in life. I've worked many different jobs, but writing seemed to always lurk in the background as an aid to everyday strife. I help students during the day, then create at night (when I'm not catching up on sleep/DVR). I'm a proud Puerto-Rican who very much belongs in Slytherin House.
