An editing masterclass with Peter Midgley.

After Peter won the Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence, he remarked in an interview that editing is like carving a delicate relief on an eggshell, that he is terrified each time he starts to edit a book. Many seasoned editors chastised him for that remark: you should have confidence, they told him. You should think like a winner, for that is what you are. Be bold and confident. Those are fine traits to aspire to, but what gets pushed aside brashly as a result of such thinking is that the craft of editing needs vulnerability. Boldness and confidence in writing and editing emerge from embracing fear and vulnerability. This is a workshop about embracing the hidden potential of vulnerability in your editing practice.

This is a workshop event. Admission to this event is not included in a festival pass.
