WRITERS’ DAY EVENT
Helen Corner-Bryant spent a number of years at Penguin working in editorial before setting up Cornerstones Literary Consultancy in 1998. In 2016, she opened Cornerstones US, creating the world’s first transatlantic literary consultancy.
Helen lectures internationally at universities and festivals. Her book, Taming the Crows: How to Edit with Confidence and Elevate your Writing will be published by John Murray in 2018.
In this one-hour seminar, Helen will talk about preparing an author for the trade, showing you how to unearth your inner editor and develop key self- editing techniques.You will learn about plots and how to test them; character, voice and style analysis; pacing and that elusive “page-turning” quality; what to do with overwriting; and formatting to industry standard. This is a masterclass in the editor-author relationship, giving you an insight into some of the key skills involved and how to use them.
