Self-Editing and Submitting for Publication

Saturday 10th November 1.30pm-4.30pm

Self-Editing and Submitting for Publication with Josephine Taylor and Hannah van Didden

Join Josephine and Hannah to learn how to edit your short-form writing and ready it for submitting to publishers or competitions. With their different yet complementary backgrounds in writing, editing and publication, your facilitators bring a wealth of tips and practical exercises in relation to self-editing, organising your writing life, dealing with rejection, self-promotion, identifying the right opportunities for your style, and submitting the final version – as the best it can be!

Hannah van Didden

Hannah van Didden is a Perth-based writer and book designer. Pieces of her have appeared in publications such as Southerly (Aust.), Breach (Aust.), Hippocampus Magazine (US), Atticus Review (US), and Southword Journal (Ire). While trying to stay faithful to writing novels and helping others get their writing ready for publication, she entertains a love affair with short forms. In another life, she helps others to run their projects with discipline and creativity. This balance feeds her writing—and potentially yours—when you seek her advice or come to her workshops.
