Writers, don’t miss Meghan Pinson’s Feb. 3 workshop on “Novel Revision 101: DIY and Collaborative Revision.” Held from 10 a.m. to noon at The Lodge Des Peres, 1050 Des Peres Rd., St. Louis, MO 63131, it is free to St. Louis Writers Guild members; $5 for nonmembers.

“In this two-hour workshop, you’ll draft a plan to get your novel from first draft to finished manuscript. We’ll break down the stages of revision and editing and look at how fear, avoidance, and pride are your worst enemies,” Meghan said. “I’ll teach you how to know when to get help, where to find it, and what to expect from it. You’ll leave with an editing schedule that starts with you and expands to include critique groups, professionals, and beta readers.”

Meghan Pinson provides expert editing, engaging critique, and fearless consulting to authors of novels and nonfiction manuscripts. She launched My Two Cents Editing in 2009 as a full-time freelance copyeditor and has steadily expanded to help her clients move from first draft to faithful readerships. Now her small crew of literary specialists provides comprehensive manuscript critique and a full range of editing services: editorial assessment, developmental editing, line editing, copyediting, proofreading, and post-editing cleanup. She leads writing and editing workshops and collaborates with her partner at Outrider Literary to guide authors through publication along indie, traditional, and hybrid paths.

Meghan is a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, the Greater Los Angeles Writers Society, the Missouri Writers Guild, the St. Louis Publishers Association, and Reedsy (where you can see her portfolio).
