    In recent years, Big Publishing editors have primarily become acquirers with little time to edit. That means the burden is increasingly on the writer to deliver a spotless manuscript that an agent can sell quickly. This one-day intensive course will run through common and unsightly editorial mistakes in manuscripts and teach you some simple tools to ensure that the next manuscript you submit will be spotless. We’ll also spend the last portion of the day editing the first five pages of your manuscript.

    A MacDowell Colony and Hawthornden Castle Fellow, Leland Cheuk is the author of the story collection LETTERS FROM DINOSAURS (2016) and the novel THE MISADVENTURES OF SULLIVER PONG (2015), which was also published in translation in China (2018). His newest novel NO GOOD VERY BAD ASIAN is out now from C&R Press. Cheuk’s work has been covered in Buzzfeed, The Paris Review, VICE, San Francisco Chronicle, and elsewhere, and has appeared in publications such as Salon, San Francisco Chronicle, Catapult, Joyland Magazine, Literary Hub, among other outlets. He is the founder of the indie press 7.13 Books. He lives in Brooklyn. You can follow him on Twitter @lcheuk and at lelandcheuk.com.
