Setting the Creative Foundation
Allen Arnold


Most days, it’s all you can do just to do everything that’s expected of you. But over time, this approach leads to weariness, burnout, and a loss of heart. It’s impossible to help authors breathe life into their manuscripts when you have no life yourself.

This session provides tangible ways to lay a foundation that will maximize your joy and creativity as you help authors shape their stories, sharpen their manuscripts, and survive the often feast-or-famine world of a freelance editor.
