Pamela Hewitt, teacher

A qualified teacher, I’ve presented face-to-face editing programs for universities, colleges, writers’ centres and societies of editors around Australia and internationally. I have also developed online courses in professional editing.

Fiction Editing Masterclass

The Fiction Editing Masterclass is a professional development program for practising editors with at least two years’ experience in fiction editing who wish to extend their knowledge, skills and expertise. The program is a series of closely designed workshops, each focused on a different story element in fiction. Workshops will be live, online, and last two and a half hours.

I will be teaching these masterclasses alongside my colleague, Renée Otmar. Please contact me or Renée for further information about the masterclasses, costs and discounts. Registrations open 1 December 2021.

Writing and Editing Digital Texts
with Pamela Hewitt

Today, writers need to understand the digital world and decide how they want to participate in it.

You don’t need to be a techie to publish and publicise your text on a variety of digital platforms. Learn from accredited editor Pamela Hewitt, who has worked in editing and publishing for over 25 years.

Working through the practical, hands-on exercises in this course, you will:

  • understand current digital technology
  • learn strategies for presenting your blog or podcast or story on a range of screens
  • explore the digital possibilities for texts you’ve already written, in any subject area and genre
  • gain insights into the pros and cons of self-publishing

This is an on-demand course, which means it’s available any time, whenever you’re ready.
