The Edmonton Poetry Festival presents Editing Master Class with Peter Midgley on April 25th, 10:00 AM at The Matrix Hotel, 10640 100 Ave

After Peter won the Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence, he remarked in an interview that editing is like carving a delicate relief on an eggshell. Many seasoned editors chastised him for that remark: you should have confidence, they told him, you should think like a winner.. Those are fine traits to aspire to, but what gets pushed aside brashly as a result of such thinking is that the craft of editing needs vulnerability. Boldness and confidence in writing and editing emerge from embracing fear and vulnerability. This is a workshop about embracing the hidden potential of vulnerability in your editing practice.
