COMING SOON!

Edit Your Novel 3-Month Intensive

We’ll be teaching live our Edit Your Novel course this coming January 2018, specifically designed for genre fiction writers.

Perfect for novelists who have never edited a novel before and need guidance through the process.

Suitable also for dedicated novelists who want support and structure to edit a novel in three months.

There will be some changes and additions from previous years, still being decided. But here’s what I have in mind so far:

  • This will be a three-month course, January 1, 2018 to March 31, 2018.

In previous years, I’ve taught this as a one-month class and saw that it wasn’t enough time to make sure writers actually got editing done. We want you to have a sense of accomplishment and edit an entire novel, which is possible in three months.

  • This course will come with three home study courses:
    • Edit Your Novel 30-Day Writing Challenge ($197 value)
    • Editing for Compelling Characters: Beyond the 5 Senses ($197 value)
    • How to Choose Your Story’s Structure ($37 value).
    • Plus new material to guide your editing and revising. (Value!)
    • To support you in your work, we’ll come together in the fellowship with 6 webinar calls throughout the 3 months, the second and fourth Tuesday evenings. ($1200 value)

You’ll have a chance to have your work “live edited” and ask questions that arise to two experienced novelists and master teachers, Beth and Ezra Barany. Together we have written and published over 20 novels.

Investment: $799

To get on the waiting list for this class, contact Beth Barany here.

 


We’re all about helping novelists write, market, and publish their fiction with our self-paced and facilitated courses.

We specialize in helping genre novelists with all the ins and outs.

We’re in our fourth year and still creating new classes, though we have a full complement of live and home study course to help you plan your novels, write and edit them, publish and market them.

So if you’d like a course and we don’t offer it yet, we’d like to hear from you.
