The Awesome Cheryl Klein

I recently attended the Metro-NY SCBWI professional conference with Cheryl Klein, Senior Editor, Arthur A. Levin Books (an imprint of Scholastic).  Her talk:  Twenty-Five Revision Techniques.  What a power editor, and what a power speech.  If you haven’t heard of her, you’ve heard of one of her books.  You can see her book listing on her website: and I’m sure that several will be familiar to you.

If you haven’t had the chance to hear her, don’t despair!  All of her advice is posted on her blog, Brooklyn Arden.  I always prefer to have someone explain their philosophies in person, but this blog does a great job of walking you through her techniques, step by step.  Check out the “writing” sub-category.  There’s plenty there to guide you, get you through a rough patch, or “get the juices flowing” as my mother always said. 

One exciting note:  Due to the popularity of her blog, Cheryl has decided to self-published a book on writing.  She announced it at the seminar, but I’m not sure of the release date.  Whenever it arrives, I expect it to be a very useful tool!
