Editing Services by NEHW - Not sure about your current work in process? Not sure if it’s right? New England Horror Writers is offering its editing services. To be specific: bring us 3-5 pages of your manuscript to the New England Horror Writers booth, make sure your name is on every page, and the pages are numbered AND double-spaced. One of the members present at the convention will edit that sample of your writing. You can take our suggestions or not — it’s completely up to you. Drop it off Saturday at the New England Horror Writers Booth (so we have time to do them) and pick them up Sunday. This is a limited space offer, available to the first 25 people. We may not edit your piece to the point where you can shoot it off to a publisher, but we will make comments and suggestions. Be open minded and don’t be afraid.
