In this post, GrubStreet Instructor Ben Berman uses the occasion of cleaning out a fridge to discuss the differences between editing and revising.
It always begins with that little old cup of leftover beans that’s not quite moldy but on its way or the container of mac ’n cheese that wouldn’t fail the sniff test, per se, but you could use the Tupperware.

What's launching your book really like?
By Katrin Schumann
Your first event is with a panel of authors in front of a crowd of 200 people. You buy new lipstick and pray your voice doesn’t quiver.
The alarm rings at 5am. The Uber doesn’t turn up. On the road late!
Within three days of your book launch, you catch a cold and lose your voice. It's so bad that you have to postpone your big radio interview.

Ahh, April. The birds are singing, flowers are blooming, and new short classes are springing up at GrubStreet. Take a look at some of this month's exciting offerings:
April 8th, 12th & 13th
The April 2019 edition of "Writing Life Essentials," a monthly hand-curated list of contests, grants, scholarships, submissions calls, and awards, with a focus on opportunities that are at least one of the following: local, free to apply, and/or committed to celebrating and supporting writers from historically marginalized communities. We do the research, so you have more time for what matters: the writing. Or, the stopping to smell the flowers. That matters too.
