Review Your Memoir Like a Developmental Editor
How clearly can you see your own story? This class teaches how a professional developmental editor evaluates memoirs for readability and reach. We'll talk about identifying and addressing key issues that make personal storytelling effective, including theme and concept, plot arc, character development, pacing, narrative voice, and relatability. Through weekly exercises, you'll explore new tools to help you see your work in progress from a fresh perspective and learn a few tricks to help you tackle revisions.
