Join Club Ed Conversations

We’ve been having some great (written) conversations during our monthly Q&A on the Club Ed Conversations forum (second Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon Pacific time) and I wanted to build on this energy by creating slightly more focused sessions.

This happened naturally during the October session, which focused on coaching. You can find that discussion on the Club Ed Conversations forum. (If you’re not a registered member of the forum, add the forum to the shopping cart as if you were buying a class. There is no charge, but this procedure allows you to register quickly and easily.)

In order to provide an opportunity for Club Ed participants to hear from a variety of editors, I’ve invited guest hosts to join me in answering questions during several upcoming chats. General questions about Club Ed self-paced classes or editing in general are still welcome at these more focused chats.

Here’s the schedule:

November 9, 2021 – Siobhán O’Brien Holmes will be taking questions on how to edit horror, young adult, and middle grade fiction

December 14, 2021 – I (Jennifer Lawler) will be hosting, and we’ll be talking about business and learning goals for the new year

January 11, 2022 – Khelsea Purvis, editing comic books and graphic novels

February 8, 2022 – LiVatia “Gwyn” Jordan, on literary agents and traditional publishing

March 8, 2022 – Judy Gruen, editing memoir

April 12, 2022 – Katherine Kirk, editing tabletop RPG (role-playing games)

May 10, 2022 – Amarilys Acosta, on diversity/sensitivity reading

I’ll update this list as more guest hosts are scheduled.

If you’re not able to join the conversation at the appointed time, you can send your question to the chat early using this form.
