Let’s talk revision!

In this PAL-level webinar, Linda Sue Park will show you how to take your writing to the next level, using simple but crucial techniques.

She will address questions like: How can you identify and eliminate unnecessary words? How does paying attention to nouns help unify a story world? How can easy keyboarding tricks help sharpen your work​?

Following Linda Sue’s presentation, SCBWI-IL’s PAL Coordinator, Sarah Aronson, will moderate an interactive question and answer period among Linda Sue and attendees. A recording of this webinar will be available for one week after the event.
