Local book editors hosting writing workshop

Carin Siegfried and Betsy Thorpe, two former editors from St. Martin’s Press and Random House, are hosting a “Two Editors and a Comma” workshop next month for writers looking to pitch a book idea.

The event, May 12 from 1 to 5 p.m., will give writers helpful tips and allow them to meet others in their field from around Charlotte. It costs $250 to take part.

The workshop will cover how to compose an effective elevator pitch, how to write a query letter that won’t be overlooked, how to research and land a literary agent and other frequently asked questions of would-be writers.
