Writers are admonished to murder their darlings before sending a manuscript out into the world. This is easier said than done—which is why there are editors. This workshop, presented by the senior editors at the Darling Axe, shines the spotlight on the editorial process and includes a discussion of the errors they see most often in manuscripts.
