Bham Lit Fest Workshop 5: Editing Your Work – with Kasim Ali

Saturday 8 October 2022, 1pm – 3pm 

The Exchange, 3 Centenary Sq, Birmingham, B1 2DR


As an editor who moonlights as an author, Kasim Ali has both edited other people’s work and had his own work edited. In the workshop, Editing Your Work, he’ll focus on how to think about editing your own work, where to begin with it, and all the tips and tricks he’s learned over his career to wrestle your manuscript into shape.

Whether it’s problems with your plot, your structure, your beginnings or endings, this workshop will walk you through the struggles that every author goes through.


About the host:

Kasim Ali works at Penguin Random House and has previously been shortlisted for Hachette’s Mo Siewcherran Prize, longlisted for the 4th Estate BAME Short Story Prize, and has contributed to The Good Journal. He comes from Birmingham and now lives in London. Good Intentions is his debut novel.


This event is part of Birmingham Literature Festival 2022.
