Writers are admonished to murder their darlings before sending a manuscript out into the world. This is easier said than done—which is why there are editors. This workshop, presented by the senior editors at the Darling Axe, shines the spotlight on the editorial process and includes a discussion of the errors they see most often in manuscripts. 

David Brown founded the Darling Axe in 2018 after working as a freelance editor for more than 15 years. He is an award-winning short fiction writer, and his debut novel is represented by the Donaghy Literary Group. He has published poetry, fiction, and nonfiction in magazines and literary journals, and he has an MFA in creative writing from UBC. David lives in Victoria, Canada, in the traditional territory of the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. 

Michelle Barker is an author from Vancouver who has published short fiction, non-fiction, poetry, a picture book, and several novels. Her novel, The House of One Thousand Eyes, has won numerous awards, including the Amy Mathers Teen Book Award. Her newest novel, My Long List of Impossible Things, was just released by Annick Press. She has an MFA in creative writing from UBC and works as a senior editor at the Darling Axe.
