Guest Speaker: Jenny Argante, Editor in Chief!

Yesterday, the RWNZ C2C (Coast to Coast!) Chapter  was lucky enough to have Jenny Argante, the Editor in Chief at Oceanbooks as our guest speaker. Oceanbooks is a cooperative publishing company in Mount Maunganui, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

We met at Deryn’s (writing as Virginnia De Parte) home in Papamoa for a fantastic shared luncheon followed by Jennie’s entertaining talk.

Jenny was an English teacher for over two decades and uses her talent and enthusiasm for our language as a writer and editor. She is Editor in Chief at Oceanbooks as well as working independently as an editor and is well-published in fiction and poetry.

She discussed:

  • what she, as an editor, looks for in a manuscript (such as grammar, spelling, storyline, timeline, plot details, credibility),
  • how to avoid common errors in your writing and
  • tips on analysing your writing project.

It was valuable to me, as I’m sure it was to all of us.

Thank you Jenny, Deryn and the rest of the C2C group!

Did you know you can become a shareholder of Oceanbooks?


Thanks for reading! Good writing, all! Back to Express Desire!  Nearly done!
