Make Your Writing Shine
with Linda Caroll-Bradd
About the Class:
Who wouldn’t love two weeks of interactive assistance from freelance editor and award-winning author, Linda Carroll-Bradd? This class is for anyone who wants to:
- Learn how to identify shallow POV and make it deeper.
- Learn how to change your writing from Telling to Showing.
- Perk up the pace of your prose.
- Pinpoint the weak spots in your writing style.
This workshop will provide tips to help you tighten your sentence and paragraph structure and make your writing shine! Through the use of checklists, topical lectures and structured writing/revision exercises for each lesson, Linda supplies tangible examples of what to look for and how to fix it.
About the Instructor:
The years Linda Carroll-Bradd spent working in secretarial positions paid off when she ventured into writing fiction. Along her writer journey, she put her skills with spelling, grammar, and punctuation to use and edited other authors’ manuscripts—first with just friends and then friends of friends. In 2012, she formalized the process and Lustre Editing was created. Linda has a clientele that includes USA Today and NY Times bestselling authors and has worked on all subgenres of romance, plus narrative nonfiction, memoir, middle grade fiction, and police procedural novels.
Married with four adult children, she now lives in the southern California mountains with two beloved dogs. In addition to working as a freelance editor, she is the author of more than 50 contemporary and historical stories that range from heartwarming to erotic (written under pen name Layla Chase).
