I’m a COWGirl…

If you’ll be in the Bend/Redmond, Oregon neighborhood next month,  I’m giving a workshop on writing for the Central Oregon Writers’ Guild and invite you to attend! To learn more about the workshop or COWG, click here:

A Hand-on Techniques workshop
With Red Pen Girl Editor, Jami Carpenter

Even the most accomplished authors struggle with some aspect of their writing, whether it’s following the rules of grammar, punctuation, and formatting or creating the most captivating opening to catch the attention of publishers. “Redpengirl” Jami Carpenter will reveal the most common, ghastly, and humorous errors she’s encountered as a professional editor and ghostwriter, as well as provide suggestions and solutions to help writers keep their manuscripts from ending up in the “round file.”

The three-hour workshop will include hands-on activities designed to incorporate the tips and techniques introduced. Participants are encouraged to bring five copies of their own “first two pages” for review and recommendations, and of course, their own red pens!
