Nancy Sakaduski, owner of Cat & Mouse Press, which runs the popular Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Contest, has seen her share of fixable mistakes in the hundreds of submissions she reviews. In this session, Nancy will review common errors in story structure, setting, characterization, and dialogue. You will come away with practical ways to improve your writing, as well as some handy hacks and resources.
