Michael Jacobson writers' workshop – The Principles of Editing
The not-for-profit group, Gold Coast Writers' Workshops, is pleased to announce the third in its series of workshops for writers by writers.
Michael Jacobson, a national best-selling author, is conducting a masterclass on October 19 in editing to assist writers in the readability, consistency and accuracy of text. His experience as a book reviewer, magazine editor and, for many years, chief feature writer for the Gold Coast Bulletin enables him to lead writers through the vital steps of producing clear, concise and compelling content. In this hands-on masterclass, Michael will show how to crystallise your message without compromising its meaning.
Jacobson was born in Launceston, Tasmania, in 1961. A journalist for more than 30 years, he was the Gold Coast Bulletin's senior feature writer, columnist and books editor until leaving the newspaper in July after 23 years of service. His first novel, Windmill Hill, was published by Hodder in 2002, with Always East following in 2004. Both were national best-sellers. After an eight-year break, he is currently finishing his third novel. Away from writing, Michael enjoys The Who, merlot and the Sydney Swans. He detests flying and the music of Neil Diamond.
