Treasure Hunt, Self-Edit Style!

While I’m waiting for notes on my WIP from my Scribe Sisters, I’ve been doing some research on things, including agents, revisions, candle making, how to properly skin an animal (don’t ask), and I’ve come across some gems. 

Mostly on the revision thing.

Cheryl Klein, an editor at Scholastic, has this fantastic recap of a talk she did for an SCBWI conference on revising and self-editing. The full speech is also there for your reading pleasure.

Literary agent Natalie Fischer (Bradford Lit) recently posted a great recap of her talk at an SCBWI event on the revision process.

YA author Holly Cupala (Tell Me a Secret) has compiled a huge list of posts from various authors, illustrators and industry pros on revision!

Hopefully you find these links as useful as I have. Happy revising!

In other news, if you haven't seen the amazing book trailer for Carrie Harris's debut BAD TASTE IN BOYS, go do that immediately! Our own Valerie Kemp created it!

  3. Thanks for the links. We make our own candles. Sheets of beeswax and wick. So easy, my three year old helps! You did say candle making, right? If not, my comment was completely random!

  4. Hi, Rebecca! I did say candle making! I made a flower press and I'm pressing some daisies that I'd like to put in the candles, on the side. I bought a glass jar and some wax. I just need a cotton wick. :)
