Review Your Own Novel Like a Developmental Editor
How clearly can you see your work in progress? In this series, you’ll evaluate the "big picture" effectiveness of your novel—including plot, characterization, setting, pacing, and craft/style. Guided by a professional editor, you will work through questions and exercises each week to apply a developmental editing perspective to your fiction, and explore ways to see your writing from a fresh perspective. This class also covers common issues that trip up writers, and tips and tricks to help tackle revisions.
What to Expect from an Asynchronous Class with Hugo House:
Asynchronous classes are perfect for students that need flexibility!
During an asynchronous class, instructors release new lessons once per week. Students then have one week to complete that lesson and any accompanying coursework. You'll learn as much as you would in a traditional class but with the flexibility to work at the best times for your schedule!
While there are no live sessions, asynchronous classes are still a lively and rigorous experience. Async classes are not static lessons but an adaptable and energetic community space. Be ready to work in a collaborative environment, giving and receiving feedback on your writing, participating in discussions, and growing your writing practice in a way that works best for you!
