Learn how to edit and troubleshoot your work

Discover how to hone your plot and tighten up tension

Lovingly redraft your words into something even more beautiful


Editing isn’t just about darling-murder and endless re-reads — it’s a journey of exploration in which you discover where your story’s really going.

In this FREE five-day course, we’ll cover when to edit, how to edit, troubleshooting, redrafting, fine-tuning, deconstructing, reconstructing, and what to do once you’ve finished. 

Here’s where you find out what you’ve got to work with, what your story’s about, and what hidden subtexts and themes you may have unwittingly uncovered. 

It’s where you hone your plot, tighten up your tension, develop your characters and get closer and closer to the finished, polished version of your story. 

So join us on a five-day editing adventure to hack, slash, and lovingly redraft your words into something even more beautiful.
