Megha Majumdar | Editorial Master Class

Online, Zoom Saturday, May 30

Editors are the champions of writers, but we can also use an editorial toolbox to improve our own writing. What does it look like to be my own editor? How can I create distance between myself and my writing and look at it with an editor's eye?

Editors and debut authors Megha Majumdar and Megan Cummins will lead an Editorial Master Class on the relationship between an editor and their own writing. How does a writer become their own editor? How can they edit their manuscripts to best articulate their vision? Join me on Saturday, May 30, for the third in a series of Editorial Master Classes where we will examine the different ways an editor and writer work together. And explore what other models might be.

Megha Majumdar is the author of A Burning (Knopf). She works as an editor at Catapult. Born and raised in Kolkata, India, she now lives in New York City.  

Megan Cummins is the author of the forthcoming story collection If the Body Allows It (University of Nebraska). She is the managing editor of A Public Space and lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Featured Title

A portrayal of mental illness like none other. More claustrophobic than Girl, Interrupted and more frightening than The Bell Jar, Howland’s memoir maps the world of a 1960s psychiatric ward with an unflinching eye.
—Esmé Weijun Wang
