The Kobo Writing Life team is excited to announce our latest Live Q&A on Thursday March 25th 2021, from 12 PM-1 PM EST. Our guests (multiple guests!) will be Kristina Stanley, the creator of Fictionary, JoEllen Nordstrom, the founder of First Editing, and Lisa Lepki, head of marketing for ProWritingAid. These ladies are experts on all things editing and together with Tara, from Kobo Writing Life, make up The Quartet

Do you have questions about the editing process? These women are an invaluable resource and can help you out with any questions you may have, from first draft story editing to final draft proofreading. They can also discuss the use of AI and technology in the editing process and how their tools can give you back some time, which we know writers never have enough of. 

But wait, there’s more! We’re giving away 4 prizes during this live event:

Fictionary: 1-year subscription to StoryTeller (value $200 US).
ProWritingAid: 1-year license ($79 USD)
FirstEditing: credit for editing services ($200 USD) 
Kobo Writing Life – Kobo Nia ($99 USD)*

Be sure to tune in live for a chance of winning these prizes! 
The Quartet will be answering all your questions on the Kobo Writing Life Facebook and YouTube pages. If you can’t make the takeover, feel free to comment on this post with your questions and we can ask them for you!

The Quartet hard at work.

Combining her degree in computer mathematics with her success as a best-selling author and fiction editor, Kristina is the creator and driving force behind Fictionary.

JoEllen Nordstrom is the founder of FirstEditing.com which has helped over 50,000 authors. They boast of successfully published authors, bestsellers, and research publications. First Editing assists fiction, nonfiction, academic research, and business authorities with editing for traditional, independent, and hybrid publishing.

Lisa is a serious word nerd moonlighting as our marketing guru and editor of the ProWritingAid blog. With over 15 years’ experience in writing, marketing, PR, and producing, she secretly loves the technical elements of writing more than the writing itself (although she won’t admit it). Lisa is the co-author of The Novel-Writing Training Plan and 20 Editing Tips from Professional Writers, and is currently working on her first novel. Her writing can also be found on Writer’s Digest, bookbaby.com, The Write Life, and DIYAuthor.
